The geographic centre of Montevideo is very near the small neighborhood of La Comercial. It is easily accessible through streets like Miguelete Nueva Palmira and smaller roads from the east and northeast.

La Comercial is home to the famous La Parroquia Inmaculado Corazón de María, which venerates Saint Pancratius, the patron saint of children. The jobless also come here to pray to the saint that they could gain employment.
