Just a short ferry trip from Buenos Aires, Colonia is Uruguay's best example of colonial life. The Old Neighborhood contains brilliant examples of colonial wealth and many of Uruguay's oldest structures. The tiny gem of Colonia del Sacramento, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, appears untouched by time.

Dating from the 17th century, the old city boasts beautifully preserved colonial artistry down its dusty streets. Dating from the 17th century, this beautifully preserved Portuguese settlement makes a perfect day trip. A mix of lovely shops and delicious cafes makes the town more than a history lesson.
