Site No. 747
Historic Quarter of the City of Colonia de Sacramento

The historic quarter in Colonia de Sacramento is a very nice, touristic place, where you can stroll around, enjoy a cup of coffee and have a relaxing view of the Rio de la Plata, which is as wide as the sea. In summer it might be crowded, in winter it is very quiet.

The old buildings are partly in reconstruction, others already well preserved. The mixture of Portuges, Spanish and post-colonial architecture is fascinating. So are the oldtimers you can find all through the city. We enjoyed our time there!
