Visit Colonia del Sacramento Lighthouse for a chance to look out over waters that have claimed countless ships over the centuries. The iconic lighthouse, overlooking the Rio de la Plata estuary, helped save many vessels navigating the savage currents in the black of night. First illuminated in 1857, the lighthouse remains in use today. Climb up its spiral stairs to enjoy the views over the harbor, and over the historic city.

  • Really nice and quite place, full of history and great places to have launch/dinner. I recommend taking a guided tour to better understand what happened there.

  • It's a beautiful place! Where you can see the entire city of Colonia There are 112 steps to climb, it is very small inside, it is exhausting but it is worth climbing each step.

  • What a handsome thing. The entrance ticket costs 1 USD, I had with me a 100 banknote and the ticket lady wasn't able to give me change. Pity, wasted opportunity.
  • Love this town and lighthouse. Streets are cobbled and buildings are stunning to look at.
