  • We got there on a boat trip, and the view was amazing! Besides the lighthouse, there is plenty of nature all around to admire. I had a very romantic time there! 
  • The Lighthouse is the end point of the catamaran, which passes through the Island of the birds and the island of sea lions. The lighthouse itself has nothing much, despite being a symbol of Ushuaia. Note, this is not the headlamp of the Jules Verne book. The lighthouse that inspired the work is the lighthouse of San Juan de Salvamento that fine on Isla de los Estados. There is a replica of it in the Presidio Museum.

  • If you visit Ushuaia you can be to navigate the channel and reach the lighthouse. Navigation is enjoyed a lot, offers a panoramic view of the city, the mountain range and several islands. The lighthouse, but is nothing more than a lighthouse encloses all the history that characterizes the place to the point that seeing him and having him close which is erize skin.
