Colonia or Colonia del Sacramento (to give it its full name)
is a small and scenic place on the southern coast of Uruguay, on the banks
of the River Plate. As the name suggests it is a colonial settlement, founded by the
Portuguese, and it is now a world heritage site.
Colonia was the second last stop in our South America trip 2005, we stayed here for a night
after getting the bus from Montevideo, and before getting the fast boat to Buenos Aires across
the River Plate. I felt very relaxed in Colonia, it was a really chilled out place and very nice
for taking photos in. Aside from chilling out, we also hired scooters and a golf cart, all the
better to explore the old streets of the town.
