What is there to do in the town?
It’s a settlement with a rich and varied history. Founded in the 17th Century by Portuguese colonists, Colonia del Sacramento can boast to be one of the oldest cities in the entire country with the curving lanes and Old Town Walls of the historic quarter clashing brilliantly with the downtown grid of modern streets. There is a plethora of fantastic architecture to sample, from the rustic Church Maritz to the abandoned Plaza de Toros Real de San Carlos bull ring. The area also contains plenty of wineries for visitors to tour and taste the local tipple.

What transport links are available?

The Route 1 highway, found just a few minutes from the entrance to the port, covers over a hundred miles of the coast en route to the capital of Montevideo. The bus terminal by the harbour is ideal for those looking to travel more locally, with routes heading into the city centre and along the beach-lined promenades.
