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.

    Interesting to know part of our history, of those anonymous immigrants, in this case of Switzerland, that forged our nation from remote locations back then. Excellent Bryan Guide, telling the story with passion. Recommended.

    Very good place. A national historic landmark. A great story of a Dutch immigrant who left his life trying to operate a windmill. A very nice place between Colón and San José, Entre Ríos. Very well recreated the life of late 1800. Excellent work of accessible tourism. To have explanation in Braille

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.
