Flores Island is a small island in the Río de la Plata, belonging to Uruguay. It is located halfway between the Rambla de Montevideo and Banco Inglés, 21 kilometers southeast of Punta Carretas. It was named Flores Island by Sebastián Gaboto, due to having discovered it on Easter Day, 1527. It housed a Hotel for Immigrants, as a lazaretto to fulfill mandatory quarantines, later also used as a prison (for example, during the dictatorship) . It has a historic lighthouse; It was the reason for the Treaty of the Lamppost of 1819, by which Uruguay lost the Eastern Missions. This lighthouse, a construction of Portuguese origin, entered service in 1828. Currently it depends on the Lighting and Beaconing Service of the National Navy. It is 37 meters high and emits two flashes every 10 seconds.Show more

NOTE: To do this and any of the tours of the Sierras de las Ánimas, a registration must be made at the Base Cabin, where a fee is paid and information is received on the conditions to visit the area. The Cañadón de los Espejos is a set of natural pools that form waterfalls of different heights and is one of the walks that can be done in the area of the Sierras de las Ánimas, a mountain chain of volcanic origin with approximately 500 million years of formation . The visit to the Cañadón shares part of the first section of the road to the Cerro de las Ánimas (you should pay attention since it is a bit difficult to find where to make the fork) and you will cross paths surrounded by a lot of vegetation, so much so that it seems like a sort of tunnel.Show more
