Iglesia Candelaria, Punta del Este

3.8
#1 of 11 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.

  • Passing by going to the most south point of Uruguay. Nice church and feels comfortable when entered. We entered here on the 23rd of December and saw the nativity placed on front of the altar  more »
  • This is an unique church, very special and blue. The way that is made, makes the building to be impressive.  more »
