Holidays to Colonia del Sacramento: Uruguay Tours + Buenos Aires, Argentina

Situated along the Rio de la Plata ('River of Silver') just 100 miles west of Montevideo, the colonial gem of Colonia del Sacramento is a charming World Heritage town, with cobbled streets and well preserved architecture. Holidays to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay are often combined with tours to Buenos Aires, Argentina as these two cities are only 45 minute apart by high speed ferry.
 
The oldest town in Uruguay, Colonia was founded by the Portuguese in 1610, with the Spanish finally taking control in 1777. At its beautiful heart is the Barrio Historico (Historic Quarter), with buildings from the Portuguese settlement fused with later Spanish architecture. The Barrio is surrounded on three sides by water, which enhances its relaxed atmosphere and incredible sunsets. On holidays to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay & tours to Buenos Aires, Argentina, just find a seat and a drink at dusk and watch the show!
 
You can cruise on the river, or stroll down Calle de los Suspiros (Street of Sighs) – a narrow cobbled street flanked by 18th century colonial houses, where time seems to have stood still. The colours and the river views are outstanding. The beautifully simple Basilica Del Santismo Sacramento is also well worth a visit on holidays to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay & tours to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Its classic Catholic style and original pillars from 1680 are complemented by an amazing array of mobiles of birds and butterflies hanging from the ceiling.
 
A favourite meeting place in Colonia is the Plaza Mayor, the biggest in town. It is lined with shops, restaurants and bars and it is a great place to join artists and craft workers, eat, shop or simply relax. The local food is also very tasty on holidays to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay & tours to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
