Ushuaia is the Capital of the province of Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost city on the planet. Known as the end of the world it is more than 3 thousand kilometers south of Buenos Aires. It has the privilege of resting between the Beagle Channel and the Andes Mountains, a quality that makes it the only trans-Andean city in Argentina.
The high season is usually in summer, when the highest temperatures occur. However, in winter the city dresses in white due to the snow and activities such as skiing and snowboarding. In spring and autumn, the colors, mainly in the Tierra del Fuego National Park, are wonderful.
During the first half of the 20th century, the country's most feared prison (now a museum) operated, which, in turn, also served to exercise sovereignty on the island. In recent decades it has become a city that continues to grow, with an important tourist center on Avenida San Martín and surroundings. In addition, it is the door for cruises that leave for Antarctica.
The Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, in the heart of the Beagle Channel, is the image of Ushuaia. But the city offers other tourist points of great interest, such as the Maritime and Presidio Museum, the National Park, and the Esmeralda Lake, among others.
Gastronomy represents a separate chapter. If you are in Ushuaia, be sure to try black hake and spider crab, flagship dishes of its culinary offer, or Patagonian lamb. Ushuaia cuisine is a real delight in its restaurants with ocean views and landscapes in mountain ranges.
