Iglesia Candelaria, Punta del Este

(600+ reviews on the web)
Church
Visit a church in one of the older sections of the city at Iglesia Candelaria. This small blue church features warm, bright colors that match the church’s welcoming atmosphere. A simple bell tower rises from the church's roof. Head inside to view a humble church interior with simple paintings and statues decorating the walls. Catholic travelers can stop by for mass, though the church fills up fast, so make plans to arrive early.
