En el casco antiguo de Colonia del Sacramento el visitante se sorprenderá con autos antiguos que en lugar de convertirse en chatarra vieja y olvidada, sirven para darle un toque especial al lugar. Ahora albergan flores.

Son ideas que generan interés visual y estético en los turistas, que no pueden pasar desapercibidos por la curiosidad de mirar dentro del auto. El casco antiguo de Colonia del Sacramento hasta hace unos años estaba en total abandono, pero en 1968 empezó la reconstrucción, que culminó en 1972. La Unesco nombró este casco antiguo como Patrimonio de la Humanidad en 1995.

Ha sido protagonista de importantes películas, gracias a la fusión de la arquitectura española y portuguesa. Definitivamente, Colonia del Sacramento, un paseo muy interesante, a pocas horas en buque bus, desde Buenos Aires y a dos horas de Montevideo, en bus.

This is an overview of South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest.

To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case.

The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina.

Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians.

Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight?

I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.
