Fuerte de San Miguel, Chuy

(4.4/5 based on 95+ 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.

  • The Fort is very well maintained, very likely due to the input collection. Historic site that functions as a museum. Very beautiful view.

  • Strong very beautiful and well maintained. Inside is a kind of Museum and the tops of the walls if you have a great view in all directions. The ticket costs $6.00 and it wasn't necessary to submit documents to get through the "guardhouse" in Uruguayan access road to the Fort. Indispensable for those who will ride to the Chuí.
