Santa Teresa

In Santa Teresa the attractions multiply: an old fortress, beaches, different internal roads, palm groves and exotic flora.

The trajectory of the Fortress dates back to 1762, when the Portuguese, foreseeing a new conflict with Spain, decided to fortify the point, at that time called Castillos Chicos. Its walls were built of a double stone wall of masonry and joined by stirrups. The space between both was filled with soil and rubble to form the patrol path and to resist the vibrations of the firings of the enemy artillery. Within this monument you can experience centuries of history. It passed into the hands of the Orientals in 1825, and remained abandoned for a long time until it was rediscovered by the historian Horacio Arredondo, who began efforts for its reconstruction in 1928.

To the east of the Fortaleza de Santa Teresa is the National Park, of the same name. In an area of ​​approximately 3,200 hectares, it shelters species from all continents, around two million plants and trees, in large gardens, perfectly delimited by boxwood and cypresses. It is one of the largest parks in the world, created by humanity, combining beauty and tranquility. There you can camp and take walks through the Recreo del Soldado.
