Plaza Mayor, Colonia del Sacramento

(280+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
Stroll around or take a guided tour of Plaza Mayor, a vibrant plaza with an extensive (and bloody) past. Used in its early days as a military planning hub, during World War I the square was a site of public executions of prisoners. Having seen a number of wars and changing hands between the Spanish and Portuguese, this central plaza has been impeccably maintained and today makes a picturesque, pleasant place to spend time. Go more in depth with a guided tour.

  • Tree-lined square, with ruins of the former Governor's House. Has banks, where tourists can rest. Right next to the Basilica, to the street of Sighs, the Portuguese Museum and the lighthouse. In the region there are restaurants and bars.

  • Away, in a very beautiful place where people are charming and welcoming you will be charmed by the place. For those who know a little Cuba and Santa Clara you will find the side colonial homes and the charm of this city. An hour of boat of Buenos Aires... Go ahead... for its beaches, its shops and its home...
