Nuestra Senora de los Dolores Church, Dalcahue

4.0
#2 of 6 in Things to do in Dalcahue
Humble in appearance, Nuestra Senora de los Dolores Church is a relic of the late 19th century and an inscribed member of the World Heritage List. In 1849 this Catholic church was built to replace a Jesuit missionary that formerly occupied the site. It's constructed of alerce, cypress, and coigue wood on both the exterior and interior. Nine arches support a deep portico and single tower on the facade, and stone colonnades continue on the inside. Of note is the multi-colored depiction of Christ crucified, hinged at the underarms.

    A very colonial church, is certainly a nice postal if they go to the city of Dalcahue, although it is not more than that

    I do not give good opinion because I went on several occasions and it was always closed, the Islanders told us that we reclamáramos because it was always closed and cannot be accessed.

    Dalcahue, located on the East coast of the island, close to Castro, is step towards the isla Quinchao. Its main attraction is the Church, which was named a national monument and world heritage by Unesco. Included in the tourist circuits, its main feature is built of wood and own a small museum inside. Outside, a few steps from the Church, it is tradition to photographed next to the fisherman and his boat. If you are on the way to Castro, then Dalcahue is a must-see that you won't regret it.
