Day 1: Ferry from Buenos Aires to Colonia de Sacramento

Included in this tour:

Transfer from/to hotel in Buenos Aires.
Lunch.
Round-trip navigation & port fee.

This excursion begins at the hotel and continues to the Buenos Aires tourist port to embark on a modern catamaran towards historical Colonia de Sacramento, a small yet charming city in Uruguay. Once there, a flashback of the colonial times come to mind when the Spanish, English and Portuguese disputed for this strategic enclave on the River Plate just opposite the City of Buenos Aires. Its amazing preserved state gives the idea that time has stopped, reason why it has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995. Some sites to be visited are: the City Gate – Puerta de Campo- and the renowned Calle de los Suspiros (Street of Sighs) a small narrow street with rounded cobblestones and no sidewalks, a true emblem of fortress city. We will later continue to the San Francisco Convent, one of the oldest constructions of Colonia de Sacramento, the Old Lighthouse and the Iglesia Matriz – the oldest church in Uruguay, dating from 1695-99. Afterwards our tour continues to visit two Portuguese style houses, the Casa de Nacarello -an 18th century Portuguese house and the Viceroy’s House, whose name calls attention since there never was a viceroy stationed there. Finally you are taken to the Plaza de Toros Real de San Carlos, a bullring of magnificent architectural construction, built in 1910 and only used until 1912 when the activity was banned. Return to Buenos Aires and transfer to the hotel.
