This church, completed in 1949, replaced Iglesia parroquial de Ushuaia, the original parish church. The parish was dedicated to the Most Holy Virgin Mary under the title of Our Lady of Mercy. Here is your opportunity to visit the southernmost Catholic Church on the planet!...More

This is a strange little church on the main street that is worth popping in as you walk past. It is something of a landmark, and relatively plain inside, but with a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere.

This is a really nice and colourful church from the exterior as well as on the inside even though the decor is not elaborated. Good for photo stop.

You can’t miss this red and yellow church on the shopping strip. If you go inside, you can enjoy the yellow interior and a few sculptures.

Not a major destination point, but if you are strolling the main street in Ushuaia, you might want to investigate. The doors may be closed during early afternoon hours as many of the businesses are in this city. We checked out the gift shop and...More

Built by the prisoners of Ushuaia in olden times this doesn't have very intricate architecture. However the interior is very pleasing with buttery yellow walls. It is quite warm inside on a windy and cold day.

The church is really small and is not special in many ways. The thing that makes it stand out is that the building and much of the interior is bright yellow. If you pass by, which you probably will due to the location of it,...More
