The weather station of Punta del Este dates from the first decade of this century.
Antonio Mrak, onetime owner of the premises, began observations from his home, carefully recording his conclusions.
Ten years later the state took over from him, making Punta del Este one of the oldest weather stations in Uruguay.
Its systems are fully automatic nowadays, and connected to the Uruguayan weather stations network.
The peninsula of Punta del Este is a piece of land that divides the Rio de la Plata and the Atlantic Ocean.
Gorlero Avenue divides the peninsula in half. It ends on 15th Street, and the land turns towards the east at this point. +
