Enjoy the countryside of Canelones

Nature and the traditions of the countryside of Canelones are only a few kilometers away from Montevideo.
A group of rural establishments in the rural area of Canelones and Santa Lucia have gathered to show the everyday life of men and women working on the fields, growing the food served at the tables of many Uruguayans.
There is a group of local tourism offering innovative trails to show the diversity of agricultural production and family businesses by sharing their stories, culture and values.
Some proposals include lunch and tea, with a classical and traditional country style homemade menu that is worth a try.

The Senderos de Santa Lucía Group is formed by several farmers and producers that can be contacted to arrange the visits.
