Made a big detour from Colonia to Montevideo to visit the town of Fray Bentos. In the UK it's synonymous as the brand that produces corned beef and tinned meat pies.

The factory is now closed but they have preserved many objects of interest in a large two level museum. These items are looked after by a most... More

Stuck in Fray Bentos with nothing to do? Travelling through Western Uruguay and interested in the history of Beef products? Be sure to check out this museum. The location is great - the old meat packing factory and the little barrio that grew up around it. The staff are really friendly and helpful. All the curation is in Spanish but... More
