Molino Forclaz, Colon

4.2
#1 of 17 in Historic Sites in Province of Entre Rios
Visit a rustic and charming monument to the agricultural heritage of the area at Molino Forclaz, an aesthetically pleasing stone windmill. The brainchild of Juan Bautista Forclaz, a Swiss immigrant, the windmill was completed in 1890. Unfortunately, due to the lack of proper wind speed and consistency required for the blades to turn, the windmill went largely unused until it became a local attraction and a National Historic Landmark in 1985.

  • For the curious who would like to know every place of a region. The place has good service, but is very small and does not have a wide variety of activities. Knowing this and with appropriate expectations, is recommended.

  • Located in the historic centre of the city, one of the most beautiful Museum I saw. Since the start of the tour you feel part of history, the atmosphere is incredible and the guides are super friendly. If you go to San José, this place is a must stop. They charge bonus contribution but it is very cheap.

Where to stay in Colon

The most popular place to look for accommodations in Colon lies between Av. Pres. Juan Domingo Peron and the Uruguay River. Attractive riverfront hotels offer good selections of amenities, including pools, spas, and well-appointed dining rooms. As a rule, head farther from the Uruguay River if you're looking for a budget-friendly option. On the side streets of Colon's main neighborhoods, you'll find a good selection of family-run posadas (guesthouses) and simple hotels offering comfortable rooms for a good night's sleep.
