The Hotel Plaza Mayor is located in the main part of a favoured zone - \"The Old City\". Founded in 1680 by the Portuguese, it still preserves part of its original buildings and narrow streets which meander in the search of the river. Colonia del Sacramento was recently declared a \"World Heritage\" by UNESCO.
Visitors to Colonia feel a nostalgic air from its paved streets, the yellow lanterns hanging in the doors, the flowery flowerpots standing in the windows and a lonely lighthouse looking over the river which surrounds the old city. A real charm that equally captures all who visit this charming city.
