Treinta y Tres

<<previous next>>
Treinta y Tres (meaning 33) is yet another departamento located at the east of Uruguay. The Laguna Merín (a small lake) separates it from Brazil. The capital, also called Treinta y Tres is a small city with 28,000 people. This city is located 283 km away from Montevideo, and you can get there by driving north on Route 8. This is the same panoramic road that leads to Lavalleja and you get to see the sierras as well as many different kinds of interesting scenes and animals.

Treinta y Tres is the second least populated departamento (the first is Flores). However it is quite well known as "Los Olimareños", two very famous Uruguayan singers were born there. The people from this departamento like to be called olimareños. The word comes from the name of a river called "El Olimar" that is in the departamento. The name Treinta y Tres was given because of the "Treinta y Tres Orientales". These were 33 men that fought for the independence of Uruguay from the Spaniards at the beginning of the 19th century.

The city is pretty small and doesn't have many attractions. There is an obelisk and a monument that reads "Libertad o Muerte" (Freedom or Death), the inscription that could be read in the flag that they carried. The last of the following images shows the view of the city from my hotel. It all looks pretty much like that.

The interesting attraction there is "La Quebrada de los Cuervos" or the Crows quebrada. You can see the quebrada in the picture below. Crows are flying over it all the time and the place is secluded and beautiful. You are supposed to go down a really steep cliff and see a couple of different attractions which unfortunately I didn't see (didn't feel like coming up afterwards). But hey, you have a reason to come down here and then tell me all about it!

The Quebrada de los Cuervos is not far away from the city of Treinta y Tres and on the road you can see lots of differnt birds (cows, horses and sheep will always be there as well). I only could take pictures of a couple, but there are many different kinds and it's a lot of fun to see them. If you happen to know the name of the last bird below, do leave a comment. Thanks for reading!

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
