  • This is a beautiful church in the heart of downtown Santiago, has an architectural beauty that impresses, has a very cute and little visited indoor Museum that is worthwhile. You can see and photograph it in your path by the Centre, or if you have time and are looking for peace and quiet come and enjoy his altar, in addition to the Museum.

  • The Church of la Merced is located in the Centre of Santiago, so is that in passing when we walk out there, and it is worth stopping to admire its architecture, with its towers and clock, and if it is open, take advantage and enter. . The Church is well maintained, and the stained glass windows are beautiful.
