Basilica De Santisimo Sacramento, Colonia del Sacramento

4.1
#4 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.

Where to stay in Colonia del Sacramento

In contrast to its quaint historical architecture, Colonia del Sacramento offers a range of multi-story, luxury accommodations. Most of these sit near the tip of the city's peninsula, with swimming pools and good beach access. If you want to stay in the old town itself, choose between a range of hostels, inns, and boutique hotels housed in buildings more in keeping with the city's colonial architecture. Make sure to reserve your accommodations in advance, especially if visiting on a weekend or during the busy summer season.
