This is a charming little town that needs to be discovered. We walked all over it and really liked it a lot. People are very nice. They start the day during summer days very late. It has beautiful restaurants and nice stores We loved it.

Nice to see if you like history, otherwise......... There are some other interesting areas in town (near the church) where history has been dug up. I personally thought it was interesting, but not everybody agrees with me. The gate makes a nice picture though.

We enjoyed walking around Colonia Del Sacramento and we were interested in the Barrio Historico. It was part of the history of the town and along with everything else made our trip worth while.

We were excited to visit Colonia del Sacramento and saw so many positive reviews. I have never been more disappointed in the reality we discovered once we arrived. There are some beautiful, shady streets, but it was surprisingly dirty and there was almost no historic...More

This is the historic centre and it is one of the oldest parts of modern Uruguay, steeped in history, various States laid claim to the territory and the Portuguese and Spanish influence are obvious. It is worth sitting down and taking a moment in a...More
