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.

  • 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.

  • Who comes to the border has to take some time and explore this beautiful historic location just 8 km from the city of Chuy.

  • Part of the history of the forts or Portuguese fortresses in this area, is very well preserved and serves as a Museum, has a drawbridge which is a strong attraction

  • Well maintained historic site. Charge input but low cost and well worth it. Good view from the Fort.

  • Beautiful ride well near the Chui, worth going for their historical value. Of course more reviews of what you will be seeing one.

  • Excellent 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.

  • A very nice, historical, short walk. They charge a very cheap entry.
