Chillan Cathedral, Chillan
Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
Survey the idiosyncratic architecture of Chillan Cathedral, a cathedral built in the mid 19th century as a tribute to the almost 6,000 lives lost in the massive 1939 earthquake that devastated the city of Chillán. The 11 parabolic arcs that adorn the structure act as thoroughly modernist, emblematic, and striking features of the church, built to represent prayer and interwoven hands. Head inside to see how natural light seeps in throughout the length of the church. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Chillan holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Chillan Cathedral and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
