(Muelle Villa Soriano)-----In 1624, a Franciscan Mission established a reduction for the indigenous tribes of the area named Santo Domingo de Soriano. It constituted the first permanent European settlement on Uruguayan soil, predating the foundation of Colonia del Sacramento by more than fifty years. It was moved to its current location in 1708. The construction of its church began in 1751. The town has strong associations with General José Gervasio Artigas, who is honoured by Uruguayans as the 19th century liberator of the country.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Fundada probablemente como una reducción franciscana el 3 de junio de 1624 y emplazada originalmente en la isla del Vizcaíno, en la confluencia de los ríos Negro y Uruguay, con el nombre de Santo Domingo Soriano, constituye el asentamiento más antiguo europeo en suelo uruguayo, precediendo en la fundación a Colonia del Sacramento por más de cincuenta años.
