  • Museum, of what was formerly known as the post of the Chuy. Historical place located 10 km away from Melo, Cerro Largo Department capital. In it you can appreciate the architecture of the period, and revive the lifestyle of those times. They are currently performing work of restoration of the bridge.

  • We went in the month of February to Melo to attend a wedding and wanted to take advantage of known attractions in the area. The most recommended was Museum of the Posta el Chuy to which we went one Saturday and was unfortunately closed. It's a shame that a place so important since it was the first office of the Uruguay and has a lot of history in turn was closed... only were greeted by a cute puppy. The Ministry of tourism would have to think a bit more globally in tourism and not only focus on the coast.
