  • At 70 splendid hs forming a large green lung of the Park San Carlos on the banks of the Uruguay River meets the castle with a long history and value makes it worth to visit it built between 1886 and 1888. St. Antoine was there on occasion his plane is averiara. Inside the castle there is a Museum and tickets sold there same in the park opposite the Castle. You can enter a beautiful nursery and explore it also. a monument to the exodus East, which is located opposite the city of salto RoU. From various points, you can appreciate the nearby eastern city and also walk to the coast River with wonderful views... scents, colors and sensations. There is a hotel within the Park and a danceable confectionery. Beautiful place that is worth knowing.
