Regular price $18.00 USD

Select Dimensions

This photo captures the ancient water reservoir in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. Nestled on Rivadavia Street, it is a testament to the city's past. Its roots trace back to 1880 when the Portuguese were the city's primary inhabitants. The Bastion of Carmen, as it's known, was a military fortress instrumental in fending off Spanish invasions against the native Charra people.

Initially engineered for warfare, the reservoir's catacombs astound with their immense size and unyielding strength. The structure's survival is owed to several restorative efforts that have maintained it in an exceptional state. It is one of Colonia del Sacramento's oldest structures, preserved to such a degree that visitors often feel transported to another era. The sight of the ancient halls, vaults, and masonry carries an undeniable echo of the past.

The photograph reflects my passion for capturing history through the lens. Each print is a testament to exceptional quality, hand-signed on the reverse side, ensuring authenticity. It comes with a certificate of authenticity and a lifetime warranty against fading. The prints are crafted from 100% acid-free cotton paper, presenting a warm-tone finish with a subtly textured surface. Archival inks precisely capture every detail, from deep blacks to vibrant hues. Each print comes without a frame, allowing you to choose one that best complements your space.

A part of my commitment to you is free global delivery, ensuring that you can own this piece of history no matter where you are in the world. If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with your print within 14 days, you are assured a full refund. The promise of exceptional quality extends beyond the print and is reflected in every aspect of my service.
