  • A small Cathedral opposite the main square of the city. It is simple, it has no more attractive than other churches in the region.

  • Beautiful Cathedral of Calama. Stay in front of a square and travertine marble floor. The Church's space of much faith and peace.

  • It is located in front of the main square, March 23 or better known as the Plaza de Armas. It was founded in 1906, under the patronage of San Juan Bautista. It has simple and sober lines at the same time, keeping a very own place beautiful style. I love the ceiling in a v-shape upside down, held by straps of dark brown wood. It is a single nave, with a large Christ crucified behind the altar. The walls are wide stone. The Bishop that I could greet him at the mass of gallo is a very young man, who gave a beautiful homily. At the end of the mass of gallo, invited a delicious chocolate and gave us Easter eggs with cute bunnies and Easter doughnuts. I have attached photos. was I helpful?
