Two quiet cities in northwest Uruguay filled with history and culture. Colonia del Sacramento, the oldest village in Uruguay, with picturesque cobbled streets, an intriguing history, and a colonial barrio distinguished as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Carmelo, a quaint, beach-front town facing Buenos Aires across the Río de la Plata, the perfect place to relax and enjoy spa treatment, golf, biking, and a nice glass of Tannat wine.
Explore the historical spots of Carmelo, including mystic “Calera de las Huérfanas.” Then head to Colonia del Sacramento and visit its churches, museums and Real de San Carlos with an ancient bullring. Enjoy your free afternoon in the city.
