Colonia, Uruguay (UNESCO World Heritage Site)*

Cross the immense Río de la Plata, the widest river in the world, into the Uruguayan town of Colonia. Founded in 1680, Colonia was the only Portuguese settlement ever established along the river. Here it served as a contraband port against the Spanish. Due to its Portuguese past, the town has a very different feel than that of any Spanish colonial city. Today, Colonia’s narrow cobblestone streets and colonial homes are reminiscent of historic Lisbon, Portugal and this unique flavor has earned the town the distinction as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. *Included in all sessions except our Fall Semester Program, where we offer our "Atlantic Beach Trip - Mar de Plata" excursion. **If you are non-US citizens and come with a special visa you will not be able to participate in the Uruguay excursion due to visa regulations.
