History of the name of the travel agency " Mar Dulce" When you start the process in Ministry of Tourism in 2000 , now Ministry for the opening of the Travel Agency thought it had to have a name with history and could match any fact relevant to identify in our city .
This is why we think first in our country, its name , this word ' Argentina ' It comes from the Latin argentum ( silver). Right from the times of Pedro de Mendoza to refer to the region of the Rio de la Plata.
The Portuguese called it Rio da Prata because of rumors that postulated the existence of precious metals and eventually won

Why we turn out like this important identification Rio received as the first name " Mar Dulce" by his greatness and taste of the water . ]
The first part of this story begins in February 1516, when Juan Diaz de Solis , thought he had found the narrow searched and discovered the river also Dulcellamado Mar and Santa María Solís river , but what he found was the Riode Plate.

The first inhabitants of these lands were nomadic hunters and gatherers who, more than 11 millennia ago, came on foot from the north to what is now the Great island of Tierra del Fuego, territory that was still connected to continental Patagonia. Of these groups, which were related to the tehuelches the continent, and haush selknam peoples emerged. From the western archipelago of Patagonia came another wave of settlers, nomads of the sea, Yamana and Kawésqar.
The January 18, 1869, informed the Argentine and Chilean governments, an Anglican mission led by Waite Hockin Stirling, forming the first non-native settlement very near the archipelago, to what would become the city was established. The following year he replaced Thomas Bridges.
It is considered as the foundation of Ushuaia to October 12, 1884, the day Commodore Augusto Lasserre created a sub-prefecture next to the mission, with the aim of reaffirming Argentina's sovereignty after the treaty with Chile in 1881, which was recognized by the inhabitants of the Anglican mission, 26 hoisting the flag albiceleste.
The September 28, 1884, with about three hundred inhabitants, Ushuaia Lasserre received that came with the "Expeditionary Division to the South Atlantic" aboard the gunboat Parana, having gone through Staten Island, with staff two cent hombres.26 The superintendent of the "Mission Sud Americana" was the Rev. Thomas Bridges, whose firm is among many others in the act of establishment of the maritime sub-prefecture. Other signatories were the catequizadores local Mission Robert W. Whaits and John Lawrence, in charge of teaching, so can be considered the first teacher of Tierra del Fuego; and secondly, to mention only those who were left in place, are the staff of the sub-prefecture Alejandro Virasoro y Calvo, who was appointed first deputy prefect; Pedro Reyes; and Luis Fique, Ushuaia known as "The First Argentine."
Originating were also present, including Jorge Okkoko, Jorge Lauaia, (son of Jemmy Button), Sisoi, Cushinjiz, Maracol and Clemente Wiyellin.
Others present were the members of the crews of the Parana, Transportation Villarino, Patagonia Comodoro Py and ships, including the commander Federico Spurr, who made the first contact with missionaries and Lieutenant Esteban Deloqui, which in 1902 was Governor of the Territory. Of the members of the sub-prefecture, which were settled in Ushuaia Isorna sailors and Jose Antonio Rodriguez. The November 25, 1884 the first governor of Tierra del Fuego is appointed Felix Paz.
No delineation of streets or blocks until 1894. The expanding a picturesque village multicolored people returned. Ushuaia began to occupy a place among Argentines when he began, in 1896, the Criminal Colonization sending men and women who were given sentences of several years. This project quickly changed to cause overcrowding in prisons given the immigration receiving Buenos Aires. So it became a prison for repeat offenders in wood and metal boxes. In 1902 begins the construction of stone and mortar, by the convicts themselves, Building 5 pavilions. Currently it operates the Maritime Museum and the Prison of Ushuaia, the Antarctic Museum José María Sobral, the Art Museum Marino Ushuaia (first art museum of the Province, 2006) and the Art Gallery of the Maritime Museum of Ushuaia (also the first of the province).
The Anglican mission ceased then your task and the only activities outside an incipient commercial heading, were those of government employees and the Presidio. This institution, which therefore brought development, introduced in masonry construction and stones, adopted by some neighbors in buildings that demonstrate their durability (current City Hall and Museo del Fin del Mundo, former National Bank built in 1913) but did not become popular.
As the white man advanced on the territory of the archipelago, the life of the original suffered serious disturbances. A mortality by direct killing (for the habit of killing sheep ranchers) was joined by the much effect annihilating the old world infectious disease caused by the native population, which by not evolved with them, lacked antibody completely. For these reasons, by 1930 they had almost completely disappeared.
In the early twentieth century was built in the vicinity of the then village of Ushuaia's famous prison, which was in service as a prison between 1902 and 1947, when the government of Peron closed hand Director of the Federal Penitentiary Service Roberto Pettinato father. Later it passed into the hands of the Argentina Navy and after a period of neglect, is now the Maritime Museum and the Prison of Ushuaia.
Among other curiosities, such presidio had the southernmost railway line in the world, leading to the prisoners from the prison to labor camps located in what is now the National Park Tierra del Fuego; place that had been affected to install the Penal Colony. Today this railway line has been reactivated mainly for tourism purposes, connecting a terminal located in the entrance of the national park with a station 7 kilometers later.
