Colonia del Sacramento

dscf1614We’re doing some rest and relaxation at this tourist destination on the Rio de la Plata. We can also tick off another UNESCO world heritage site; before the arrival of the day-trippers from Buenos Aires we took these photos in the historic old town.

Founded by the Portuguese in 1680, the town then ping-ponged between Portugal, Spain and Brasil so the houses and cobbled streets show a mix of architectural styles. Good to see them preserved.




Thanks for reading. We'd love to hear your thoughts
