  • Beautiful architecture in the Centre of the city. Quiet place to find peace, 18 hrs make a rosary.

  • Its origin dates from the year 1563 with the establishment of the Franciscan order in the Serena.Es of simple and colonial, but significantly beautiful lines-it was declared a national monument in 1977. It has walls of a meter wide, from stones taken from the quarries of high Peñuelas, in Coquimbo. It is considered one of the most important testimonies of the colony given its antiquity and architectural quality. He suffered countless restorations, resulting from successive earthquakes, being her last started in 1976. I have attached a photo, did you useful?

  • The Church is very beautiful (to me like even more than the Cathedral), but we must also mention that Gabriela Mistral had a very special relationship with the Franciscans. They administer the royalties from their works. There is a small chapel where stands a beautiful poem by Gabriela used to meditate.

Where to stay in La Serena

La Serena provides a varied selection of sleeping options, with the area between the main bus station and the town center featuring at least one hostel on every street. Despite this abundance of lodgings, many hotels book up fast at the height of the tourist season (summer: January-February), and some refuse visitors on single-night stays. If you're looking for the ultimate in space and comfort, consider renting a furnished apartment on the coastline.
