República Oriental del Uruguay, better known by its initials BROU, was founded in 1896 under the presidency of Juan Idiarte Borda. It is the most important Uruguayan bank with the largest number of customers.
On October 22, 1896 at 10:00 a.m. the great doors of this magnificent building were opened to the public for the first time. Among hopes and fears, the first 54 employees of the bank began their first work day. The first deposit was made by the President of Uruguay, Juan Idiarte Borda.
