Iglesia de la Merced, Ushuaia

3.8
History buffs and churchgoers will find a lot to appreciate at Iglesia de la Merced, a simple yet charming Catholic church built in 1898 and declared a National Historic Monument in 1999. Striking in its sparseness, the church stands out with its bright orange facade. As you visit, take note of the how it differs from many of the typical ornately decorated South American churches, with very little stained glass.

  • Know thank you for the opportunity to be in Ushuaia. Only God even to make the dreams come true. Photo of the Pope at the entrance of the Church and inside. Is even a celebrity and pop. It must be a proud having this Pope Francisco. The Church is simple, but very cozy and quiet. Very pretty. Well worth a visit.

Where to stay in Ushuaia

Despite its nickname, Ushuaia is certainly not the end of the world when it comes to finding comfortable lodgings--as long as you plan ahead and reserve your room in advance. Hotels and hostels are equally crowded here during the peak season (October to March), so it's advisable to arrive with a solid reservation in hand. If you choose to visit during the winter (June to mid-September), expect to find many establishments closed for the season.
