I'm very much interested in churches and museums so the first thing I did after embarking from my cruise ship in Ushuaia in late December 2014 was to visit this church. It is a short walk from the Port, about 6-8 minutes. I took me...More

Apparently this church was built by prisoners which may account for its simplicity. Seems fairly modern and therefore none of the intricacies of older churches. The spire acts as a landmark for wherever you are in the area

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.

Dropped by this church walking along San Martin when I stayed one night at Ushuaia. It is nothing magnificent but its bright yellow exterior and interior color is quite unconventional for a church. The simple architecture of the church interior is also pleasing to the...More

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

The central church in Ushuaia. Simple and nothing special. You won't miss it when you're in the heart of the city centre.
