Overview

Situated on San Gabriel Peninsula along the Rio de la Plata, Colonia del Sacramento is a city in south-western Uruguay. With a population of 21,714 residents, it is the oldest town in the department of Colonia and the only Portuguese settlement in the area.
Colonia del Sacramento has a temperate climate marked by warm summers and cool winters. The most pleasant season is summer, which extends from December to March; during other seasons the days are bright and sunny and nights are cool.
Functioning as the main water thoroughfare between Argentina and Uruguay, Colonia del Sacramento was founded in 1680 by Manuel de Lobo. For years it was the centre of the struggle between the Spanish, who founded Montevideo, and the Portuguese. Today, it is a resort city, a port, and the commercial centre of the agriculturally rich region.
