  • We stopped to Ancud, town in the North of the island of Chiloe archipelago for 5 days mayor not only to rest after the tiring trip to Peru, but also to visit the wooden churches, rightly become a world heritage site, along the rue des Iglesias, as suggested by the visit to the Museum of Ancud, which contains precisely all models of 16 churches. They were built between the 17th and 19th century. According to the traditional chilota school which at the time of the Jesuit missionaries, had imported German workers, for architectural design and had made use of local labor, carpenters versed in shipbuilding technology. Hence these churches completely wooden, interlocking with use only nails to fasten the floors. In addition to the Cathedral, the churches of Narcon and Chonchi, Dalcahue and Achao ones we also visited. In my opinion the most striking is the latter, the oldest of all. We partly used public transport, but especially the taxi for those furthest from Ancud, our base. If you are lucky with the weather and no rain, turn to the Islands it is a nice experience almost a throwback with quiet rhythms of life in a landscape full of greenery, picturesque coves and bays, with wooden houses, often on stilts, colorful.
