Uruguay is a small country located in South America, bordered to the north of the Argentina and tourism is not widespread in the world. However, it offers some cultural attractions very beautiful and can be visited on a day tour of some Latin American countries.
In Uruguay we will find the Fortaleza Santa Teresa, one of the most important remains of the River Plate country. Because of its proximity to Brazil, the Fort was begun at the hands of the Portuguese in 1762. It is a fortress built to withstand great fights with great wars has even until the liberation of Uruguay as an independent country. Then for many years the fort was abandoned and then is retrieved.
During the visit to Fortaleza Santa Teresa will see a museum and models, a tinderbox, a chapel, weapons and other spaces of daily life of the building. To get to the place we go to Santa Teresa National Park.
On the other hand, we may also visit the San Miguel Fort, built in 1734. It began as a fortress-quite the contrary-but then the Portuguese strengthened. Here we also find a museum that recreates the life of the fort 250 years ago.
The area offers valuable cultural attractions, such as roads lined with mounds of 2 meters in which, under, lie buried the remains of the aborigines who inhabited the region. Without doubt, are two highly recommended destinations in our step by Uruguay.
