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.

The first structure dates from 1734, but already in 1740, your plant amounted, featuring starry format with 4 pentagonal bastions on the corners, with walls and internal service buildings erected in irregular unit of stone masonry. Restored and very well preserved, tells the story with excellence, on your inside museums and a small shop selling books and souvenirs. I recommend all the ride!!!!!!!!!!!

He likes nature and natural landscapes is something you have to know because the photos do not say anything. Between shrubs, we climbed up large stones with children 2 and 3 years. the entrance to the Fort out 40 pesos and I remember well, but I think that Monday and Tuesday is closed.

Santiago Saint-RomainJanuary 6, 2017Excellent historical place, all very well taken care of to make one feel that it is at the time. Many things are learned and seen how they lived exactly at that moment and how they lived in the fortress.
