  • Wonderful and flawless. We were almost at noon and the wood (parquet) floor was newly polished! At that time it was less crowded than the Cathedral.

  • Downtown Santiago is worth to be visited and enter each place listed, as this church. If it is not by religion, in every part of the world religious architecture is exciting!
