Trip Planner: South America / Uruguay / Colonia Department / Colonia del Sacramento / Plaza de toros Real de San Carlos
Admire Plaza de toros Real de San Carlos from the outside and imagine what the bullring must have looked like in its heyday. Once used for the controversial sport of bullfighting, the building's crumbled remains reflect sadly on the fate that has befallen it. The stadium was only used for two years, between 1910 and 1912, then left to decay for more than a century. You can't enter the bullring, so it's only worth visiting if you are a fan of abandoned structures and have time to make the hour-long walk from the city center. Make Plaza de toros Real de San Carlos a centerpiece of your Colonia del Sacramento vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Colonia del Sacramento online visit planner.

Maybe good to see. Nice area with great antique shop, Rail museum. Good restaurant not far. Actual bullrings being restored for other use. So only guided Tour available for 150 Uruguay pesos. For us not worth it. Maybe for others
Being able to see the skeleton of the building slowly exposing itself as the bricks and walls fall around has its charm. Walked along the beach front from the town center and came across a friendly stray dog who decided to come with us and be our tour guide for the day. Game of fetch in the ocean on the way back home
