Iglesia Candelaria, Punta del Este
(4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Always I'm in Punta del ESTE this Chapel visited her... chiquita or little blue Church on the tip, in the square in front of the lighthouse of Punta del Este is undoubtedly an icon. It has a warmth, a the mystique of a church which was built under the guidelines of Alchemy. With a very proper orientation. It is recommended to visit it as it surprises by its intimacy!

  • Picturesque Church, nothing out of the ordinary, small and sober. If you are religious you can interest but completely dispensable.

  • In the best location of Punta del Este a place to linger outside the General hustle and bustle. From the outside and inside worth seeing, located directly on the lighthouse.

  • The parish is a fairly common parish in the building. Beyond this is a nice walk by the quiet and picturesque area

  • Beautiful church of blue and white color color gable-roofed brick. It is located two blocks from the Praia dos Ingleses, opposite the lighthouse of Punta del Este. The Virgin of Candelaria is the patron saint of the city.
