Overview

Founded by the Portuguese, Cologne was coveted and disputed for a century. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, its historic center is preserved to delight the visitor. Its cobbled streets, its peace, its museums, history and elegance make it a must to visit.
Starting from Montevideo, you will get to know its rural area, as well as the fields and industries of the Department of San José, until you reach the Department of Colonia del Sacramento, which stands out for its milk production, originally promoted by Swiss, German and Italian immigrants, among others. .

What To Expect

Granja Colonia
We will visit the farm-museum that houses the Guiness Record pencil collection in the world, conquered by the collector and owner of the best-known cheese and sweets factory in the area. In addition to learning about the collections and history of Don Emilio Arenas, you will be able to taste the classic cheese and dulce de leche, as well as jams of various flavors.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Porton de Campo
We will enter the Historic Center through the old portico of entrance to the city, among the remains recovered from the wall that at the end of the 7th century defended the Portuguese and Spanish who alternated in the government of the Colony. We will visit cobbled streets and squares where, in addition to museums, there will be workshops of renowned artists and artisans.

• Admission Ticket Free

La Calle de los Suspiros
A street with Portuguese buildings where the color pink and yellow predominates, alternate with sober Spanish houses. The beauty of this street and its surroundings arouses romanticism, not so the different versions about its name.

• Admission Ticket Free

Faro de Colonia del Sacramento
Built on the ruins of the San Francisco Xavier Convent in the mid-19th century, its flashes at night will warn mariners approaching the Colony. Those who climb it will have a view of the Plaza Mayor with period buildings transformed into museums.

• Admission Ticket Free

Basilica De Santisimo Sacramento
In the so-called Plaza de Armas, since 1810 is the most important Catholic temple in the city, the Spanish architect Toribio gives it its current appearance, but the stones at its entrance announce that the construction was originally Portuguese. Formerly, the Blessed Sacrament was found on its facade, which today stands out on the main altar.

• Admission Ticket Free

Plaza de toros Real de San Carlos
Beautiful resorts lie on the Río de la Plata, with Real de San Carlos being the pioneer in the area. To get to it we will walk the wide promenade and discover the history of the visionary Nicolás Mihanovich, who created a magnificent bullring; an elegant hotel with casino; a Basque pelota court, a racecourse and a small train station.

A Colonial Gem
rmhMelbourne, 31-10-2022
Walking the lanes with original cobble stone surface (from the 1700's) and seeing the Portugese and Spanish architecture examples.
Very clean and well-preserved.
Histórica e cheia de charme

Cidade sensacional! Tranquila. Vale a pena passar uns dois dias, andar pelo bairro histórico. Ver o por do sol, que é um espetáculo a parte. A cidade conta com várias pousadas charmosas e ótimos restaurantes, sorveterias... Se estiver de carro de uma volta pela rambla e pare no letreiro de Colonia para apreciar a vista do rio da prata. Adoramos a cidade e com certeza voltaremos em outra oportunidade.
Si quieres desconectarte, éste es un buen lugar.

Ciudad tranquila, amigable. Hay que visitar la parte histórica y las atracciones cercanas. La rambla es hermosa para recorrerla. Recomiendo para descansar y desconectarse.
