  • With Puerto Montt Cathedral located in the Plaza de Armas, it passes backward than with the Church of san Francisco in Castro. Outside, the Cathedral is much nicer inside, where there is nothing artistically attention, at the time that outside arises as attractive. The square is a good place, that allows to make a possible high if the walk was long.

  • Worth a visit to the center of the square, but is his church which makes a better view of the culture of Puerto Montt. It is wooden and has its history... very beautiful...

  • While it is quite hard (much concrete) attracts many people, thus serves well its purpose.
