You can climb for UR $ 25 each. The view doesn't impress, but you can see small details of the town, the flowers on the roofs, as well as see the arrival and departure of the Buquebus.show original
Vale a pena subir, mesmo em dias nublados. O visual é deslumbrante! Venta bastante, mas é super lindo ver a cidade toda e toda a imensidão do rio!It is worth climbing, even on cloudy days. The look is stunning! Gusty, but is super cute to see the whole city and all the immensity of the river!show original
If you want a better view of the town then for a few dollars you can climb to the top of the lighthouse.
Beautiful white lighthouse. You can visit the top for a view of the colonial town. Entrence is cheap.
A lovely first monument to view.
Very nice lighthouse in a very nice colonial town. I didn't go up to see the view though. Worth at least to pass by.
Worth going up for a decent view of Colonia, but you'll also realise when you're up there that there really isn't anything spectacular about a high up view of Colonia, the best views are had walking around the streets of the old town.
