Colonia del Sacramento

Over 100 miles west of Montevideo, along the Rio de la Plata, lies the magical World Heritage site of Colonia del Sacramento. This well-preserved and charming colonial town is just a 30 miles ferry ride from Buenos Aires and its cobbled streets attract many visitors from Argentina.
 
The oldest town in Uruguay, Colonia was actually founded by the Portuguese in 1610 and the Spanish finally took control in 1777. At its beautiful heart is the Barrio Historico, with its preserved buildings from the Portuguese settlement, fused with the later Spanish architecture - and incredible world famous sunsets. Just find a seat and a drink at dusk and watch the show! The Barrio is surrounded on three sides by water, which only enhances its unique, relaxed atmosphere. You can cruise on the river or take the trip to Buenos Aires.
 
Stroll down the Calle de los Suspiros – the Street of Sighs – a narrow cobbled street flanked by 18th century colonial houses where time seems to have stopped. The colours and the river view are outstanding. The local food is tasty so enjoy and relax. The beautifully simple Basilica Del Santismo Sacramento is also well worth a visit. 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.  Download our Uruguay brochure (PDF 0.5 Mb)
 
ALL OUR COLONIA DEL SACRAMENTO HOLIDAYS ARE FINANCIALLY PROTECTED wherever in the world you live. Selling holidays for over 15 years.
Colonisation here was divided between the Portuguese and the Spanish and the Portuguese story is told beautifully in the Museo Portuguese, in the centre of the Barrio. Situated in a lovely 18th century colonial building it houses a wide range of excellent exhibits from Portuguese colonial history.
 
A favourite meeting place is the Plaza Mayor, the biggest in town. It is lined with shops, restaurants and bars and it is a great place to join the artists and craft workers and eat, shop or just chill.
