Visiting Colonia del Sacramento is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for history buffs. Indeed, Colonia del Sacramento has been listed on Unesco's list of Cultural Patrimonies of Humanity since 1995, owing to the Historic Quarter, which contains the remains of the first Portuguese settlement on the Plata River in 1680, as well as a rich Spanish heritage from subsequent centuries.
Enjoy the historical atmosphere of the old town with its uneven stone streets, the wall and gate that closed the Colonial City, the lighthouse, and typical 17th and 18th century Portuguese and Spanish residences.
You will also pass along Riverside Avenue, which leads to Real San Carlos and the Bullfighting Arena, which was built in the early twentieth century. This tour also includes a visit to Granja Arenas, a traditional Colonia farm famous for its Museum of Collections, which is unique in the world, and the jam factory, where you will try delicious jams of various types as well as the typical Swiss made in Colonia.
