Colonia del Sacramento - Uruguay

Founded by the Portuguese in 1680 on the Río de la Plata, the city was of strategic importance in resisting the Spanish. 
After being disputed for a century, it was finally lost by its founders. 
The well-preserved urban landscape illustrates the successful fusion of the Portuguese, Spanish and post-colonial styles.
