Landmark
Feb 2020
This lighthouse is one of the few old landmarks in this very modern city. It is not possible to go inside but it makes for a nice photo.

Old style lighthouse
Mar 2020 • Friends
This is one of the few historic things to see in Punta del Este. It is well worth walking to and imagining what it would have been like when it was first built, this is not easy given the amount of commercialism that now surrounds it. The local area although very modern is full of nice bars and restaurants.

Tall Well Maintained Lighthouse
Feb 2020
This lighthouse is at the focal point of the Atlantic Ocean and the Rio de la Plata (River Plate). One can imagine standing here and seeing the German Battleship Graf Spee being scuttled. The lighthouse is about 150 ft tall but it is not possible to visit inside.

A fine lighthouse
Mar 2020
We stopped here on a tour of Punta Del Este as a photograph stop. It is indeed a fine lighthouse from outside. It is well worth the stop to enjoy and it is a shame that access only occurs on Heritage day.

Beautiful piece of history in the town
Jan 2020
This lighthouse is in town and not to be confused with the one on Isla de Lobos which has the tallest lighthouse in South America.
This lighthouse was built in 1860 and is definitely worth a photo opportunity.

The place is nice, not much to see just the lighthouse and the oceans coming together in the same place.

Beautiful old building with stunning history
Nov 2019 • Couples
This is a great building, although most a tourist bus photo call now. Situated slightly away from the main town centre, this is worth a 30 minute stop, although finding a parking place in summer could prove interesting. The place to go if you want history and culture.

Outside viewing
Jul 2019 • Couples
We've been in Punta del Este three weeks now and have tried on a few occasions to get inside. There are two pictures in TA where someone was at the top, it was in January so maybe it is only accessible in the Summer. The square that sits near the lighthouse has a weather measurement station as well as the lovely Candelaria Catholic Church. Best of all though is the palm trees which have numerous Quaker Parrots living in them. The eat on the greens of the wquare and drink from puddles after a rain. Excellent.

Basic small lighthouse
Dec 2018 • Couples
If it weren't for the small church across the street this stop could be missed during your tour of Punta Del Este.
