Visit the top attractions of Colonia del Sacramento on a 3-hour private tour. Explore the 17th-Century Portuguese settlement to explore the national monuments, and visit the historic buildings of Uruguay’s oldest city.
What to Expect
There has never been a better time to see the old architectural city of Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay’s oldest city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995.
The unforgettable 3-hour private tour will take you along stone-paved streets to see historic buildings and museums that reveal their Spanish and Portuguese influence. You will visit many different locations, including Colonia del Sacramento’s downtown area, where you will also discover the more modern city developments.
Continue from downtown to view the busy port area, facing Buenos Aires across the Rio de la Plata. For years the area operated as a contraband port, evading the strictures imposed on trade by the Spanish crown.
Stop at Uruguay’s beautiful Fernando Beach, where you can relax for a brief moment to savor the sounds of the waves crashing onto the beach. Next, visit the Forestall Reserve for a fabulous opportunity to immerse yourself in Uruguay’s natural landscape and see native animals.
Finally, visit the Real de San Carlos Bull Fighting Arena. First opened on January 9th 1910, the arena hosted a total of 8 fights before bull fighting was prohibited by the Uruguayan government in 1912.
This wonderful private tour will help you understand the source of Colonia del Sacramento's natural pride as you tour the city's most spectacular monuments and beautiful historic buildings.
