Iglesia Candelaria, Punta del Este

(4.3/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • In a city that lacks distinguishing landmarks (other than The Hand), this little church stands out and has an interesting interior. Worth a stop on the main walking route.  more »
  • It is a very nice parish, near the lighthouse. You can take pictures and appreciate the architecture. It has mass at 19 (I think)

  • 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.
