It was interesting to view this structure, the steelwork was fabricated in Great Britain. There is a railway museum opposite. There are plans to refurbish part of the arena to provide a concert venue.

We walked 5kms along the river ( which looks like the sea as it is so wide!) on a beautiful afternoon in April to take a picture with the 'Colonia' sign and to see the Plaza de Toros. The building can be seen from the...More

This is a pretty old site and not that well maintained. Its pretty far away from the port and old town and hence can skip this unless you really have nothing else to do.

It's an abandoned place, nothing especial, probably the most interesting and special thing was all the way before to arrive there from the historical center.

Regrettably, the bull ring building can only be seen from outside because of a fence around it. The iron and brick construction is Interesting as well as its middle age arabic style. Far from the old town, better reach it by bus, bycicle or car.

Sadly, the bull ring is a dilapidated ruin that you can only see from outside a fence. Interesting iron construction with a crumbling brick exterior. Not worth the walk from the old town.

Anyone visiting Buenos Aires should take the one hour Seacat trip across the Rio de la Plata to Colonia, Uruguay. (Take your passport. You won't travel without it). The Barria Historica, a short walk from the port, is full of interesting sights, including the City...More
