This is the street to change money and it is full of gift shops and restaurants. Prices are a lot more convenient than in the historic downtown.

My memory might be failing but I found the main street boring this time. Few shops and the restaurants all seem to only offer burgers, pizzas and empanadas. The sidewalks are a hazard,

This is a lovely old street with lots of shops and restaurants. Great to walk in the shade on a hot day.

A walk down this street and you will find everything your looking for, shops, restaurants, banks and some very cool looking cars and building. It also has much history and the municipal building is outstanding. So take a walk and enjoy, I recommend this for everyone.

This wide street is Colonia del Sacramento’s main thoroughfare and divides the historic centre from the modern city. The road is easy to navigate with little traffic and wide sidewalks. Shops, restaurants, banks, and other services line both sides of the the street. Architecture is diverse with modern buildings mixed with old.

General Flores is the main thoroughfare bisecting the Old City. It is suitable for restaurants but is mainly only a commercial street without any true cultural attractions. You can skip it unless you're looking for dining options.

Most of the streets of old town Colonia have beautiful old buildings some in good condition and some not so good. The foot paths are generally in poor repair but forget the negatives and just enjoy the history and the architecture
