Iglesia Candelaria, Punta del Este

3.8
#1 of 9 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. A visit to Iglesia Candelaria represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Punta del Este trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • In the adjacent old houses renovated lighthouse with some very well. The Church is Catholic and is an example of colonial architecture. The Interior is bare and not embellished with paintings and more like the European Churches. worth a quick visit.

  • Incredible Church, flawless example of maintenance and enhancement to 100%. Your stay is welcome, from the inside but not forgetting to mention the gardens that surround it also in perfect condition!
