Iglesia de la Merced, Ushuaia

3.9
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.

  • This is a really nice and colourful church from the exterior as well as on the inside even though the decor is not elaborated. Good for photo stop.  more »
  • A very particular Church. Located in downtown, it is a true icon of the city. Outside lllama attention for its high tower and its vivid colors, inside is sober, beautiful and harmonious lines.
