Los Cántaros, Carmelo, República Oriental del Uruguay.

The Origin

On this very wooded land full of ancient vegetation, the remains of two clay vessels (cántaros, in Spanish) over three feet high were found at the bank of the stream, next to an old stone building.

These vessels were used by sailors to carry water and oil down the River Plate in the 19th Century, and they were probably part of a shipment bound for the city of Carmelo.

Today, this exclusive development, with personality and identity, and keeping alive the natural spirit of the River Plate shore is named after Los Cántaros.

The Project

Los Cántaros is a waterfront condominium complex made up of loft apartments and 1 & 2 bedroom apartments with wide terraces, including barbecue grills, and overlooking the banks of stream Las Vacas.

This development covers a 3,550 square meter (38,212 square feet) stretch of land and features a 50-meter (164 feet) wide facade at the bank of the stream, including a pier and vehicle access along J. E. Rodó Avenue.

Creating this perfect balance between built and green areas, Los Cántaros, offers excellent world-class amenities.

The Units

These apartments have excellent finishes, with tinted micro-cement floors, exterior woodwork with laminated glass, wiring for AC in every room, an open fireplace in 1 & 2-bedroom units, closet fronts and interiors, and one-handle faucets.

The quality of materials, which warm hues are combined with an exquisite architecture, give life to broad spaces with awesome views overlooking the park, the amenities, and the water front.


Cobblestone streets, rustic wooden doors supporting heavy iron fittings, rusty boats painted by the imperceptible brush of time, peace tangible in every object, clocks with no rush, and nice people are some of Carmelo's distinctive features that make it such a special one-of-a-kind location.
