Colonia del Sacramento: City Overview












Department (Province): Colonia
City: Colonia del Sacramento
Place: City Overview







Since the portuguese and the spanish arrived to the New World, the Río de la Plata was one of the most strategic places of the Americas because of the commercial routes who started at the inland towns and the transportation of resources, from food and spices to gold and other metals. On the period when the portuguese and the spanish divided the land onto two parts, the area between what today is Uruguay and South Brazil was actually the changing limits of both empires. The portuguese expansion went to the doors of what today is Argentina and founded Nova Colônia do Santíssimo Sacramento. From that period still remain the ruins of the Convento San Francisco Javier and some parts of the walls and the old canons. On the 18th Century, after several battles between both empires, the Spanish Crown took the town and kept it till the english landed at the beginning of the 19th Century. A few years later, Colonia del Sacramento would become the oldest town of the new Republic of Uruguay. This city looks nowadays like the old medieval and renaissance areas of the western european cities. From the urban point of view, it’s quite weird for an argentine citizen to see the layout of the streets, clearly not following the spanish grid system, and with the big amount of passageways. Its biggest attraction today is the Lighthouse and most of the tourists come from Argentina, since the town itself is just one hour away from Buenos Aires on ferry.

Punta del Este: City Overview












Department: Maldonado
City: Punta del Este
Place: City Overview







Placed at the eastearn area of Uruguay, Punta del Este is the last big city of South America prior to the paradisiacal beaches of Brazil. Just like the cities of the Atlantic Coast of Argentina, Punta del Este has a very small population who barely exceeds 10.000 people, but it quickly turns into a big city on the summer, from december to february, with hundreds of thousands of high-class tourists from Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil. However, the modern architecture is noticeably better, having in mind that is one of the most exclusive cities of Latin America. Its most famous beaches are the Mansa and Brava (that could be translated as the “Calm” and the “Brave”), named due to the intensity of the winds they receive. You may also realize that Punta del Este clearly is placed between Argentina and Brazil because of the landscapes: beaches of cold water and brown sand, but surrounded by green hills (just like the brazilian beaches). The attractions of the city, except for the gorgeous Casapueblo, are all placed at the peninsula: the Lighthouse and the Candelaria Church, the Fingers of Punta del Este, and the futuristic Conrad Hotel. It also has a Trump Tower currently on construction.

..You did not say or mention about the Hollywood stars who go to Punta. And the rich and famous Europeans also, both too escape the Northern Hemisphere winter. Because of the reverse seasons it is summer there. Also any one else with money too play/be with the rich and famous....In areas outside of the city, or built up area, it looks similar to Long Island, the Hampton's, in New York. With homes equally as nice and pricey.....
