Plaza Internacional

Reviewed By Ivan S - Dongguan, China

Seems both parties, Brasil and Uruguay, are more interested on the market spell of the duty free, hotels and parallel activities and forgot that this is an historic landmark.
Also, Sant'Ana and Rivera are the more open border, and the more friendly for both sides, where both nationality live a brotherhood rare to see around.
They to not advertise, do not care and even you can't see anywhere mention to the point.
It's a pity and it's a cultural gap for both cities

Minas de Corrales, Capital del Oro

Reviewed By underground_miner - Montevideo, Uruguay

this is a historical small town, built during a mining boom in the middle of the 19th century. a nearby gold mine, san gregorio, continues to operate and thus continues the tradition. a tourist to the area must enjoy the quite pastoral scenery, the cows, the sheep, etc.
meanwhile the small town has a lot to offer, but this is often hidden from view due to lack of advertising. People are very friendly and all you need to do is ask where the hairdresser is, the pomologist, the phase therapist, etc...

Plaza Artigas

Reviewed By Norton G - Santa Maria, RS

Fica situada entre a Av. Sarandi e a Rua Agraciada. A praça é grande, muito bonita, bem arborizada e bastante frequentada pelos moradores da cidade, especialmente crianças, em razão de possuir amplas áreas de brinquedos e um belo chafariz com vários pontos de água. Tem em seu entorno a Igreja Matriz Inmaculada Concepción e o edifício do Banco de la Republica. Como monumento importante e que dá nome à praça, destaca-se a estátua de José Gervasio Artigas, herói nacional do Uruguay.

Parroquia de la Inmaculada Concepcion

Reviewed By Norton G - Santa Maria, RS

Inaugurada em 1891, a "Iglesia Inmaculada Concepcion" de Rivera está localizada defronte à "Plaza Artigas", entre a Av. Sarandi e a "Calle Agraciada. Trata-se de uma igreja pequena, simples, com um campanário e um relógio central e desprovida de maiores decorações, tanto externa como internamente. Apenas mais uma igreja.

Plaza Flores

Reviewed By Norton G - Santa Maria, RS

Fica situada quase no final entre a Av. Sarandi e a "Calle Agraciada", em Rivera. Tem algumas palmeiras e outras árvores maiores, mas desprovida de maiores atrativos. Pensa-se que 'Flores' seria devido a uma praça florida, mas o verdadeiro nome da praça é "Plaza Gral. Venancio Flores", que foi político, militar e presidente do Uruguay por dois mandatos. Existem ali uma pracinha de brinquedos e alguns quiosques de vendedores de bebidas, frutas e lanches ao seu redor, nada que chame muito a atenção de quem por ali passa.

Cerro del Marco

Reviewed By pdighiero - Montevideo, Uruguay

El Cerro del Marco es uno de los lugares característicos de la ciudad de Rivera, su nombre viene del marco que hay en su cima, hito que marca la divisoria entre el Uruguay y Brasil.
La vista que hay desde el hacia las dos ciudades es hermosa y permite ver claramente a ambas ciudades.
Es un lugar arbolado, con algunos bancos y también aquí esta rincón de los poetas, consagrado en homenaje al escritor riverense Bisio .
Vale la pena ir, se pueden sacar unas lindas fotos desde ahí.
