Well, if you're walking around the port area, you can reach to this lovely small church and see a colonial building.. But if you enjoy traveling and want to participate in a celebration, on sundays, you can reach there and enjoy all the warm spirit from Uruguayans :)

Quite small in the first sign but when you get close go inside you realise it is big. Simple but have a charm. During the summer they have service till 2 o'clock in the morning. Worth walk till there.

This beautiful Church perched on top of the peninsulas hillside dominates this lovely area. It is surrounded by the Water tower and other special buildings along with a tranquil park. The interior reflects a calming statement and is truly a place of GOD.

This little church near the point on Punta del Este presents a lovely structure. The striking sky blue color of the façade certainly makes it stand out. While the exterior portrays a picturesque sight, the interior, while simple, is also quite nice. The front mural with kneeling angels is quite a moving scene. There are also twelve wood block prints... More

This church is located on one of the most beautiful places in Punta del Este; the lighthouse. Sunday mass at noon is a great experience and during the summer when the windows are open you can even feel the sea breeze during the ceremony.
