  • It is a pity that the municipality of Mercedes has not yet found the funds to restore the Palace and its beautiful staircase on the side yard. Admission is free and includes a small collection of objects attributed to Artigas.

  • Various attractions can be found at the site where the castle of Maua. First, is the castle itself, which represents the economic and material power that the Baron of Maua took in the 19th century, being one of the most powerful bankers in the country. Unfortunately, the Castle a huge investment needed to recover its structure, exterior and interior paint is missing, taking the part of the Museum the rest is in a rather sorry with broken glass State and many parts with enough dirt. The gardens neglected in some sectors, etc. Inside the Castle operates the Museum of paleontology, very interesting with a large flow of remains of dinosaurs and models and diagrams on the walls interesting. The information provided by the guide is correct and very interesting. The accompaniment of the Guide could be improved slightly during the tour. On the grounds, also operates a winery's wines that are sold in the region and where speaking you can visit and even buy some drinks. It is very interesting for those who enjoy the tourism of vineyards and wineries. There is also the Municipal Zoo, with different species of native animals. The Zoo responds to past since it is not a natural reserve and the animals are enclosed. However, they are well fed, clean, and care. Finally, there is a beautiful area of parks with benches and tables to enjoy a pleasant day with family and friends. It is worth visiting this place!

  • Nice area to visit, too bad that the Castle fairly maintenance lacks. You should invest in it and give greater value for tourists, the place is beautiful, very quiet, breathes tranquillity and peace. There is a nice Zoo to visit.
