    The square where there is a monument and a pyre with the heroes of the Falklands, it's worth a visit and pictures.

    It should know and pay tribute to all Argentines who gave his life for his country. It is an exciting time of the visit to Ushuaia

    Without a doubt a terrible silver expenditure caused by the previous Government. It was not necessary. We remember the heroes of the Falklands without doing all that.

    A monument and memorial with an ever burning pyre to remember the Argentinean soldiers who fell in the Islas Malvinas / Falklands conflict in the short war in 1982. Pictures taken at the time surrounded it.

    A nice homage to the war. Eerie sight of a stil burning pyre for the fallen ones,
  • July 18, 2017
    There's not much to see: several plaques, surrounding a fire, a sculpture of the Islands and a couple of suggestive poems. For taking some pictures and continue later. It is quite wide and the Beagle Channel view is beautiful.

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.
