Sorry for the delay, work is giving me a busy time!
This port is in a River big as a sea. In historic time, spanish, english and portuguese kingdoms fought for the posession of the lands around.
You can also name the town.

Belem is quite far.
Conquerors though the lands were very rich in Silver, and there for the interest on possesing them.
The port is small, and quiet, too bad there is a huge paper factory right next to it.

The river I'm talking about is a common resource for two countries, it also serves as waterway to communicate their capitals cities. The port in question is half way between them.

I don't remember Colonia having such a long concrete dock, but I think you're in the right area/body of water (Rio de La Plata).

Not Colonia, but you are getting closer. Rio de la Plata (Silver River) it is.
Colonia does not have a paper mill.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Didn't the Colonia paper mill ever get built ?

Ok ... how about Frey Bentos ? (whoops that's the pie maker ....) Fray Bentos is the place.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Fray Bentos is not, but it has a very big paper mill near by. Because of that paper mill Argentina and Uruguay went to International Court of Justice, and the people of Argentina had been against of it since ever. Long long story. By the way, Fray Bentos is upstream in Rio Uruguay.
