Iglesia Candelaria, Punta del Este

3.8
#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Maldonado Department
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.

    This impeccable. invited to the gathering. It is a haven of peace and tranquility. It is very old but maintained with love, in the garden put the beautiful image of the Virgin of Shoenstatt.Emocionante for believers.

    The Church is simple, but it's part of the landscape and city walk. In your face is a square and a beautiful lighthouse to compose the whole.

Where to stay in Punta del Este
