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

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.

We stopped in here while walking down San Martin Street just before Christmas. It's has a painted interior. The altar is very nice. It's located in downtown and very easy to get to.

This is not an ornate church, as sometimes seen throughout South America. It is a place of worship for the locals, providing simple pleasures and meeting basic needs. The bell tower stands high above, and can be seen afar. Hope this helps, if or when...More

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
