Basilica De Santisimo Sacramento, Colonia del Sacramento

4.1
#3 of 9 in Historic Sites in Colonia del Sacramento
One of the highlights of the World Heritage-listed city center, Basilica De Santisimo Sacramento dates back to the 17th century, when the site was occupied by a more humble building made of mud. The pair of main towers possesses colonial-era rusticity, with the whitewashed walls adding much to this effect. The history of the church is detailed in the main building, while the neatly restored interior creates an atmosphere of contemplation and spirituality, harking back to the town's colonial past.

  • Upon entering this very austere room calling for the gathering, and the silence, one can check that it was part of the colonial life of the city above all when looking at the thickness of the windows showing how it was built at that time since the walls were serve as a protection against a possible invasion

  • This church is already a few hundred years old but is still well preserved. Although the interior is simple, there is a column which is original. Free entrance and worth a visit.  more »
  • Do not forget to pass by there, it is very simple, very small and very pretty. You are all rebuilt but it is worth entering.

  • Cute plaza in front. Church very plain
  • Ok church not as fancy or nice as ones you see In peru Bolivia chile etc. A place of worship is all you need I guess
  • Despite the fact that Colonia is a beautiful city and a cultural patrimony, this church requires maintenance.
  • Historic landmark
  • Wonderful church in this former Portuguese colonial town of Colonia del Sacramento. Worth the first visit.
