Colonia del Sacramento Things to Do: 99 reviews and 177 photos


A small street called Calle de los Suspiros (Street of Sighs) runs gently from Plaza Mayor down to Rio de la Plata. This cobblestone street is lined with early 18th century single-storey peasant houses. One is now transformed into art gallery. It is the most scenic Colonia's street and can rival any street of Latin America for its romantic effect.

Calle de los Suspiros is the best place to enjoy spectacular sunset. At night it is lit by yellow street lights and brings the feeling of the old time. It's magic!
