Popular landmark. Have to pay about US$1 to climb up the stairs to reach the top for a good view. Many tourist just take photo shot and go.

Pay the few pesos and climb the lighthouse - the view is excellent and gives a great idea of the general layout.

This place is as graphical as the rest town of Colonia. From here you can see the city centre from above and have a good view of the Rio De la Plata. You just pay 25 Pesos for entrance and after climbing the stairs you can enjoy the scenery.

We visited the lighthouse just when it opened so there was hardly anyone around . It cost 25 pesos . The steps up were very narrow and to you can't be too robust to pass through the trapdoor at the top ! Lovely 360 degree views over the town and out to the river, which is so wide it gives the idea of a sea! Great pictures can be taken from the top level!

The Lighthouse in Colonia del Sacramento is a very picturesque attraction. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to go up to the top or inside to have a view - I was only doing a short 5-hour sightseeing tour of Colonia.
Nevertheless, it seemed quite popular with tourists.
