Ex Frigorífico Anglo, Fray Bentos

4.6
#2 of 7 in Things to do in Fray Bentos
Step back in time to the World Heritage-listed Fray Bentos factory, which now houses Ex Frigorífico Anglo. The factory first opened in 1873 and produced canned corned beef for the new brand. Revolutionary in its production of meat sourcing, processing, packing, and dispatching, the factory put the sleepy town on the map for its role as the "world's kitchen," providing food to soldiers during World War I. A guided tour will lead you through the entire production process of the preserved factory.

  • historic place
  • Museum of the Industrial Revolution in the Uruguay. Good presentation, very didactic, the past of the region and the country, in what might be called its "manifest destiny" since it was the Banda Oriental: the breeding of the cattle. The building is unevenly maintained, with parts of long neglect and others very well restored.

  • Refrigerator Liebig founded in 1910, currently operates as a Museum, and composed the historical heritage of the city of Fray Bentos. Very close to the Argentine border, is accessed through the step San Martin. His visit is highly recommended.

  • Tree giant Palo Borracho, to fund the thugs of the old Anglo refrigerator. In the port in the distance a ship looks. Beautiful!
