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.

  • It was the end point of our guided tour through the city. Very interesting history and the building in general is very well preserved. Inside is warm and austere. There was also a very picturesque Manger.

  • But colonial, austere, keeps all the details of the 1700, stone adobe, a very pretty crib, nice lighting, located in the middle of all the attractions. Not miss it!

  • 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
  • 科洛尼亞老城的老教堂,裏面裝飾水平一般。
  • 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.

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.
