Bella Unión

Its name derives from its location at the point where the Cuareim and Uruguay Rivers meet, forming the triple border between Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. This makes Bella Unión a strategic economic and commercial point, which is also highly important in terms of regional tourism. Ecological reserves, extensive parks, river beaches and some historical treasures make it a very interesting destination for those who wish to discover the border part of Uruguay. Bella Unión has around 13 thousand inhabitants, with a culturally interesting border lifestyle. Perhaps for many the main attraction of the city is the possibility of discovering a different Uruguay which is marked by a strong Brazilian influence.
