Fuerte de San Miguel, Chuy

(4.4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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 beautiful place with wonderful views, several ancient objects, a wide variety of uniforms from the era, just needs more storage, even for this Rico material is not lost. There's a shop with souvenirs.
