General Flores is the main thoroughfare bisecting the Old City. It is suitable for restaurants but is mainly only a commercial street without any true cultural attractions. You can skip it unless you're looking for dining options.

Most of the streets of old town Colonia have beautiful old buildings some in good condition and some not so good. The foot paths are generally in poor repair but forget the negatives and just enjoy the history and the architecture

If you don´t know what to do in Colonia, this is a good place to start, yo will see markets, an hospital, some banks, but there is nothing outstanding here, after walk here you should go to the barrio historico.
