This is a popular tour stop. It appears to be well maintained from the outside. Besides the lighthouse there is also a famous church and meteorology station nearby.

The lighthouse is located inland. You cannot enter, just take photos from the outside. The Lady of the Candle Church is adjacent to the lighthouse. If you are in the area, stop by for a photo. If not, in my opinion, it is not worth the trip.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
