A walk through historical landmarks
City tours are widespread among tourist cities. Ushuaia has several tour options to get to know the surroundings of the capital of the end of the world, ideal to take at the beginning of the holidays or on rainy or cloudy days when you do not want to go for a walk but comfortable tours come in handy bus or minivans.
The journey begins in the La Mision neighborhood, where the Anglican pioneers settled long before the arrival of the Argentine Navy in 1884. But even before the missionaries, in 1830, the young commander Robert Fitz Roy approached the Patagonian coasts with a cartographic mission under the command of the British brig, Beagle, and had the first contact with the Yámana people. On the second voyage of the Beagle, which three years later ended up again in Tierra del Fuego, another 22-year-old young man, a fan of natural history, Charles Darwin, also arrived to collect different specimens with which he later elaborated his theory of evolution.
