Linardi y Risso occupies an historical building called "Casa
del Vicario" (Vicar's House) in the "Old City" of Montevideo
a few steps away from the Plaza Matriz, the Cathedral and
the Cabildo (Town Hall).
This building and its lot were formerly
owned by important Uruguayan personalities, including: Dr.
Nicolás Barrales, first Vicar of the city in
1738; Friar José Benito Lamas, priest devoted to our national hero General
José Artigas and also Vicar in 1838.
