Plaza Mayor - City Plaza Colonia del Sacramento - Uruguay

Also called Plaza 25 de Mayo, this was where military drills were practiced. It was founded with the colony, being the largest open area in it. Later on, gardens and paths were created and made it the lovely green space it is today. Some of the most popular historical sights surround it, including the Calle de los Suspiros, the lighthouse and convent ruins, as well as several of the city's museums. Plaza Mayor is the ideal place to take a break, relax, and just take in the incredible beauty of the Historic Quarter.
