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.

  • My grandparents visited the Fort in the years 50' and I wanted to bring to my daughters... The place is very nice. But unfortunately lacking maintenance and updating. The bathrooms are old for decades... the pool was so dirty water bottom not seen! The staff is friendly and of modes simple. Bad restaurant (dinner there) and breakfast was served in a room full of flies which not allowed us to enjoy the same. I think that with little could improve a lot, fixing and updating at least more rooms of the floor of up. If so I would happy.

  • A nice cool to know the history of Uruguay, easy access and well taken care of. Does not have many attractions but worth the visit. It costs 60 pesos per person.
