The Gomensoro Square story
The history of this square has its origins in the epoch of Francisco Piria, when he designed the Trouville's zone where the square is now located, in 1897.
The Tomás Gomensoro square was reconstructed in 1986, when the flights of stairs that give access to the rows of balconies where repaired, in addition to the brick pavement and the arbor and gazebo at the central space.
The square owes the name to a Uruguayan politician, president of the Republic, to whom this space does homage since 1919.
The square ends on the street Jaime Zudánez and creates two by-roads. This space is found between the streets Luis C. Bollo, F. Abadie and Benito Blanco, in front of the Pocitos Boulevard.
Some of the nearby places to this square are the ancient Boulevard Hotel, one of the oldest buildings of Pocitos, and Villa Biarritz's Park, where takes place fairs at Saturdays mornings.
Also it is near to the Punta Carretas Shopping center, one of the most visited ones in the city.
