The best place to see the beautiful sunset from Colonia 😍
Museo del Azulejo. Amazing 17th Century building.If you are interested in the materials used in this town’s amazing building, then this museum might be more meaningful for that rather than what’s housed inside. This stone house is still standing after centuries. Built in the last of 17th century.However, inside there is a small display of beautifully designed tiles displayed on boards but with little or no explanation. Even though we knew some of the tiles were the oldest in Uruguay we were less than impressed. In and out in under 10 minutes. ***
