Granja Colonia, Colonia del Sacramento

3.4
#2 of 12 in Museums in Colonia del Sacramento
Pore through the worldly possessions of one man, accrued over more than 50 years, at Granja Colonia. The owner, Eduardo Arenas, has been collecting keychains, drinks cans, ashtrays, perfume bottles, and pencils for half a century. He displays his extensive collection in a well-ordered exhibition space, with each item carefully arranged to form part of an impressive whole. Arenas even holds world records for his collections of pencils and keychains. After exploring the exhibition, sample homemade dishes at the on-site restaurant.

  • Over the years they were expanding the grounds, very good jams. You can taste. Normal prices. They accept debit at the same price as cash. The free Museum and increasingly more complete. Is not in the city. By taxi, bus or car.

  • A museum with a multitude of collections: key chains, mugs, pencils, banknotes, coins, etc. ...//is interesting and worth a visit if you go through it. sweet tasting of milk in the café/restaurant annex.

  • This Sunday I travelled expressly for lunch at the restaurant, a disaster! The tickets were: a few bits of cheese cut, a few cut salami, pies burned, the main dish, roasted, burned and reheated an infinite number of times, and some sausage, salads, unusual, lettuce, tomato, rice with mayonnaise, that was all. Truly I never ate so badly. Would also like to highlight the poor care and the vibe of the girl, in a disaster, silver pulled conclusion.

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.
