Centro Cultural Bastion Del Carmen, Colonia del Sacramento

(4.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A quiet place, where you can take beautiful pictures, and contemplate the river and the view of the yacht port

  • Is not the best place, but it's worth giving a passed by there. the Center works in a former soap factory and derivatives. have a big lawn care, with some interesting pieces of art. The view to the pier of Colonia is beautiful, just like the rambla of the new town. One evening, you can rest your legs.

  • It seems to be a nice place, or rather it is but lack someone who report to know dd who is also somewhat abandoned and badly used by people, camping or sleeping there.
