Colonia, Uruguay

UNESCO World Heritage site. Colonia, Uruguay

Across the River Plate from Buenos Aires (capital of Argentina) is the small Spanish colonial town of Colonia in Uruguay. The old town is beautifully preserved and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Colonia is a very laid-back place compared with the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. Old cars are very common in Colonia; you see them everywhere.
