Photographer's Note

This art gallery, the “Galaría de Arte de los Suspiros”, is representative of what you can find in Colonia, Uruguay...

A beautiful little town just one hour away from Buenos Aires’s frenzy, with ttypical colonial architecture both Spanish and Portuguese… since those two countries held the town successively. You can track the history of the city at the Spanish and Portuguese Museums (they are small, well organized, close to each other, and very much worth the visit).

Walking the stone streets of the Barrio Antigüo (‘old quarter’) is a real pleasure. You get the feeling of going back in time (even some old cars are kept ‘strategically’ parked in the front of some cafés and restaurants or artisans shops)…

Old buildings are very well kept and the ‘Barrio Antigüo’ was declared by the UN part of the world heritage in 1995.

You will find there the most friendly and helpful people too!
