The new Railway Station in Durango was inaugurated recently, thereby opening up new pedestrian routes between Landako and Montevideo, making Durango a more pleasant and comfortable place to live in.
The name Landako means "heathland" and this is how the local people talked about it when they saw the zone first developed in the 1970s.
Montevideo Avenue is named in honour of Bruno Mauricio Zabala, founder of Montevideo, Uruguay.
Landako today is a neighbourhood with the most modern infrastructure and services, and at the same time an important residential area. With its large open spaces and its impressive architecture, the Landako Gunea Exhibition Centre is the most important feature. Next to this centre we find the Plateruena Kafe Antzokia.
Still in the urban centre, very close to the Market Place, we see the Zugaza Cinema. In the street of Montevideo we see the Bartolomé Ertzilla School of Music, and by the River Ibaizabal, Murueta Torre Baserria.
