Fuerte de San Miguel, Chuy

Head to Fuerte de San Miguel, an abandoned 18th century military fort. The Portuguese built the structure to defend the village from Spanish invaders, and the Spanish later reinforced it before abandoning it after Uruguayan independence was established. View the large stone ruins of the fort, restored in the 1930s and later declared a National Monument. Inside, view a collection of historical army uniforms, a small museum of military history, and an exhibit of watercolors by local artist Emilio Regalia.

  • A site near the Chuy which must be known. Brings you closer to the colonial era. It is a very well maintained small fortress, made of rocks in the area. An economic entry that is not an excuse to visit.

  • Easy access through the Brazilian side of the Chuí, you don't have to pass customs, about 8 km from the Centre. Restored historic site. Ticket for 40 Uruguayan pesos. Worth the visit.

  • It was rebuilt with much study and is the most beautiful thing I've ever been. Similar to the Santa Teresa and the two of Florianopolis, all made at the same time. But I liked this more.

  • This strong, as the Santa Teresa are very well preserved and it allows visitors to walk through the place comfortably. I visit with my 6-year-old daughter and was delighted. Run by the place and above all I enjoy the places where display era uniforms.

  • An excellent opportunity to learn about an important part of Uruguayan and South American history, very well preserved Fort and a large collection of uniforms from time, recommend to go with time to enjoy not only the Fort but the Indian museums and carriages and field tools. In addition to the nature reserve which is suitable for walking and touring. Bring some snacks drinks and insect repellent

  • Built by the Spaniards in 1734, and three years later, in 1737, taken by the Portuguese who gave you your final design. The Fort of San Miguel, was retaken by the Spanish in 1763, although its military importance declined significantly shortly thereafter. Testimony of colonial history, was declared a national historic landmark in 1937. You must call to verify if she is open in 2016 was was closed at the time that should be open since I saw the poster of the schedule, and has a cost per person income.
