Portuguese Museum (Museo Portugues) Tours

Portuguese Museum (Museo Portugues)
Those looking to learn more about Colonia’s Portuguese heritage will find plenty of interest at the Portuguese Museum (Museo Portugues), a small museum devoted to the town’s rich colonial history. Housed in a beautiful early 18th-century colonial building, the museum lies at the heart of Colonia’s UNESCO-listed historic center, just a short walk from the landmark lighthouse. 

The museum’s limited exhibition space none-the-less houses a fascinating collection of Portuguese relics, including 18th-century furniture, porcelain, military uniforms, weapons and naval documents. Highlights include a series of old maps, a family tree of Colonia founder Manuel Lobo and the original stone shield that once adorned the town’s drawbridge.

Historical & Heritage Tours

Cologne Tour SUSPENDED

SUSPENDED TOUR It is an amazing city that you must visit before you can say "I know Uruguay". They will not regret it. History and culture go hand in hand with the kindness and hospitality of its people.A wonderful spectacle that can be observed only in a few parts of the world, are the sunsets on the rambla.As there is nothing to hide it ... you can see the sun "submerging" in the waters of the river until it disappears on the horizon.Personally I have seen it from the waterfront of this wonderful and ancient city that is on the banks of the Rio de la Plata and also from the Altos de la Ballena, in Punta Ballenas, in the Uruguayan town of Punta del Este.
