Ex Frigorífico Anglo, Fray Bentos

(4.6/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Entering its facilities camera in hand for a photographic safari is an excellent program. Imagine the neighborhood worker and the House of the Manager (worthy of a landscape of the India Colonial) in full boiling at the beginning of the century XX, them boats in the port... Great place to spend an afternoon. A trip to the past. Fabulous place. Continue to the scenic route by car, bicycle or on foot. Excellent ride.

  • A guided full and well led. Good knowledge and clarity of the Guide. Is a place of history. Don't miss, worth paying a very cheap entry.

  • Beautiful place, very full of history. Make you a walk by what was in the meat industry in the 19th century and first half of the 20th. The machinery is awesome, reminds me of what appears in the film modern times of Charles Chaplin. If you have time I recommend a visit to the Casa Grande and stroll along the scenic route which has beautiful places of natural beauty
