Colonia del Sacramento Lighthouse Reviews
es un lugar típico de colonia para sacarse una foto y después tomar unos mates, no mucho mas que eso more »it's a typical colony place to take a picture and then take some mattes, not much more than that
Se estiver em Sacramento vale passar e tirar algumas fotos para registro. Obviamente existe toda uma história do farol, porém somente isso. more »If you are in Sacramento it is worth passing and taking some photos for registration. Obviously there's a whole lighthouse story, but that's all.
Great all round views from the top of this lighthouse. There are two levels, if you chose to go upto the second top level, make sure you have a good head for heights. It's a narrow tight staircase and little space to move around at the top. Additionally the railing around the top barely reached waist level for me. It would be all to easy to lose your balance if you lent over too far and fall. Keep back from the edge. Great views out to sea and across the old town. You can pay the small entrance fee in either Argentine or Uruguay Pesos.
This is beautiful place have visit in the winter and in the summer. It’s great for kids and parents.
