Centro Cultural Bastion Del Carmen, Colonia del Sacramento

(4.2/5 based on 200+ 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.
