The Feria Artesanal (Artisan Fair) was inaugurated on July 22th, 1967.
It is a must tour for Punta del Este visitors.
There are 200 stands on Plaza Artigas, offering the most varied articles: souvenirs, wool garments, leather articles, and valuable jewellery in gold, silver and semi-precious stones.
In the evenings it tends to be very crowded.
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. +
