Centro Cultural Bastion Del Carmen, Colonia del Sacramento

Head to the idiosyncratic Centro Cultural Bastion Del Carmen, where the Rio del Plata’s old fortifications can be observed among various exhibitions. The epicenter of culture, which includes an art gallery and a theater, previously served as a military fortification for the city, before being converted into a cultural hub. The biggest drawing point of the center for tourists lies in the picturesque gardens at the back of the building. Rest at the gardens, where you can admire the Rio del Plata skyline can be observed in all its glory, accompanied by a cool drink and a snack.

  • The place is a beautiful park, beside the river. However, it hides a small ancient tunnel that is worth visiting.

  • I refer to the historic centre at the part where you have the walls that protected the city, great place to meet and drink drinks or make a meal overlooking the sea.

  • It is a free site where the garden with sculptures and peace are the most remarkable, good views of the river and garden with an impressive fireplace in the building that I could not visit because it was closed, I suspect that celebrate events and exhibitions.

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.
