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.

    Simple and beautiful church. I was able to go to mass the Sunday 12:00, felt great and happy to be able to thank the grace of being in a beautiful place and with snow as we'd hoped.

    It is in the Centre of the city of Ushuaia, from far away you can see by their characteristic colors, the interior is very nice and has an environment that conveys tranquility.

    In the Centre of Ushuaia. Bella! Entering a magnificent stained glass windows remember the sinking of the German steamer "Monte Cervantes", sunk out of Ushuaia in 1930. Their shipwrecked were people who donated it.

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.
