Barrio Historico Colonia del Sacramento
#1 of 41 Sights & Landmarks in Colonia Department

Rambla de Colonia Colonia del Sacramento
#2 of 41 Sights & Landmarks in Colonia Department
Walk along this promenade to enjoy Rio de la Plata especially as the sun is setting so you can delight in the beautiful colours of the evening and then admire the view of the river with the lights of Buenos Aires...
Also, at night the views are very pleasant and on clear nights you can see the outline of Buenos Aires with the city lights.

Puerta de la Ciudadela Colonia del Sacramento
#5 of 41 Sights & Landmarks in Colonia Department
There are some cannons and benches as well so you can sit down a bit and enjoy the view.
Portals to the past are always important when viewing historical sites, but this one in particular is very well preserved, and appears more like a window between worlds.

Paseo de San Gabriel Colonia del Sacramento
#6 of 41 Sights & Landmarks in Colonia Department
It is great specially in the morning because the Sun will be more at your back and you get a better view and better pictures of the river.
It is somewhat a remarkable view given the distance.
Faro de Colonia del Sacramento Colonia del Sacramento
#7 of 41 Sights & Landmarks in Colonia Department
This fantastic tourist attraction offers you the chance to climb to the top of a lighthouse and take in the wonderful views.
It provides a beautiful view of the whole city and, if the weather is clear, you can see all the Buenos Aires skyline, in Argentina, across the river Plata.

The Barria Historica, a short walk from the port, is full of interesting sights, including the City Gate, complete with wooden drawbridge, and the pretty Calle de los Suspiros (Street of Sighs).
The history of this bullring is interesting and the bullring itself is a site to behold.
