Mina de Corrales is a small town in the department of Rivera, in northern Uruguay.
It is located in a mountainous region, about 80 km north of the city of Rivera. It was founded in the 19th century and its name is due to the exploitation of mineral deposits that took place in the area.
Currently it is a quiet and picturesque place, with an economy based mainly on livestock and agriculture. Among its tourist attractions are the Church of the Immaculate Conception, the Cuchilla de Haedo Nature Reserve and the proximity to the Cuareim River, which separates Uruguay from Brazil.
It is also a starting point to explore the Ruta de los Yacarés and the Camino de los Ceibos, two tourist circuits that allow you to discover the natural and cultural wealth of the region.
