    When the name of the place has the word farm one imagines that you will see animals. The place has nothing of that, is a restaurant that has a store where they sell cheese and sweets. Also you have the Museum of the pencil which is interesting but is not of this world. It was not what we expected have known had not gone.

    Interesting collection. Touring it in half an hour. It is a choice to take the kids. Very rich dulce de leche... Bought me the big jar and not regret not went to the restaurant.

    Largest collection of pencils in the world. Jellies, sweet milk and cheeses to taste and buy. I found a very nice ride.

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.
