(110 reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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 large field, a beautiful Museum with some wagons which for us was impressive, a neat and nice to see fortress and the star was climbing the weevil Hill passing between bulls and cows on a narrow dirt road and shrubs on the sides... to reach the panoramic view was very nice. 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.

  • 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.
