Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
