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.

  • The ride and the Museum is very cute, now they may well have some vaquita or sheep so that the children look. In addition, we had lunch there and although the variety was limited, the food was very rich and the very cheap price.

  • Very nice place to visit on the outskirts of Cologne. Museum listed in the Guinness book for its collection of pencils. It also has an important collection of key chains, ashtrays, mugs of beer. It is worth visiting their local development and production of artisan marmalades and cheeses. They are truly delicious.

  • 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.

  • take the tour, see the "museum" displays they have there then go have some of those great preserves the make.
  • Tourist Trap.
  • Think of a pencil any you've had and you'll find that same model! It caused me a nice nostalgia. :) Precious Collections.

  • The owner is quite a character and gives a very nice tour for its collections. It eats very well and the floating island is the best I have ever tasted.

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.
