Plaza de Toros, Colonia del Sacramento
(1.1/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Admire Plaza de Toros from the outside and imagine what the bullring must have looked like in its heyday. Once used for the controversial sport of bullfighting, the building's crumbled remains reflect sadly on the fate that has befallen it. The stadium was only used for two years, between 1910 and 1912, then left to decay for more than a century. You can't enter the bullring, so it's only worth visiting if you are a fan of abandoned structures and have time to make the hour-long walk from the city center. Take a look at our Colonia del Sacramento itinerary builder to schedule your visit to Plaza de Toros and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • The truth is that gave me very sad that a place so is so neglected and closed fearing of jacopone... IT IS A HISTORICAL MONUMENT! What I saw I liked... So hopefully the Uruguayan Government put the batteries so you can restore.

  • Beautiful location and impressive monument. Although it has not given direct access that is at risk of collapse, it offers a beautiful view from its surroundings.

  • Worth a visit, it was a project undertaken by Nicolás Mihanovich, a shipping businessman in 1908, which was to have a casino and pier for boats arrived from Buenos Aires. Beside these ruins there is a railway museum. On the beach you can also buy crafts.
