Calle de los Suspiros, Colonia del Sacramento
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Roughly translated as the "Street of Sighs," the World Heritage-listed Calle de los Suspiros provides a glimpse into life during colonial times in Uruguay. Old houses sporting architectural features of centuries ago line the narrow pedestrian street, which allows strollers to feel like they're stepping into another time. Paved with stones and without sidewalks, the street remains linked to many bizarre local myths. One story claims criminals sentenced to death were left here to drown during high tide, while another tale says brothels once dotted the area, attracting lonesome sailors whose love sighs gave the street its whimsical name. Use our Colonia del Sacramento tourist route planner to add Calle de los Suspiros and other attractions to your Colonia del Sacramento vacation plans.
