Colonia del Sacramento Guided Tour
After picking you from your hotel, we will begin our tour through the historic heart of Colonia del Sacramento, where you will encounter the oldest streets and the most famous landmarks of the city. The elegant buildings are a splendid mix of Portuguese, Spanish and postcolonial architecture.
Next, we will walk through the Royal Area of San Carlos, where you will see the Chapel of San Benito, and the Mihanovich Complex, an old hotel which has been converted into the current headquarters of the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
Our visit continues along the coast of the great bay and its beaches, and through residential neighborhoods and the modern city center, until we finally return to the old town. Along the way, we will pass through the historic Portón de Campo city gate and drawbridge.
Our guide will give you all the fascinating facts and details of each of the locations we visit on the route, as well as the history of one of the most beautiful cities in Uruguay.
At the end of the tour, we will take you back to the hotel.
