Colonia del Sacramento
The Choir will cross the River Plate by hydrofoil to visit the Uruguayan city of Colonia del Sacramento.
Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, Colonia was founded by the Portuguese in 1680 and 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.
