Teatro Bastión del Carmen information
Incorporating part of the city’s ancient fortifications, this theater and gallery complex adjacent to Colonia's Puerto Viejo hosts rotating art exhibits and periodic concerts. The grassy riverside grounds out back, with outdoor sculptures and an industrial chimney dating to 1880, make a picturesque spot for a mid-afternoon break.
