Ushuaia, Argentina Overview

Ushuaia has long been described as the southernmost city in the world.While there are settlements farther south, the only one of any notable size is Puerto Williams, a Chilean settlement of some 2000 residents.As a center of population, commerce, and culture, and as a town of significant size and importance,Ushuaia however clearly qualifies as a city. A 1998 article in the newspaper Clarín reported that the designation “Southernmost city in the world” had been transferred to Puerto Williams by a joint committee from Argentina and Chile, but this was denied by Argentine authorities, and the Secretariat of Tourism of Argentina continues to use the slogan in official documentation and web sites.

Ushuaia is the capital of Tierra del Fuego, Antártida e Islas del Atlántico Sur Province, Argentina. It is commonly regarded as the southernmost city in the world.Ushuaia is located in a wide bay on the southern coast of Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego, bounded on the north by the Martial mountain range and on the south by the Beagle Channel.
