  • On the outside, it is striking for its yellow facade that contrasts with somber buildings of the Santiago Center. The interior is very sober and elegant.

  • Historical heritage of the city and historical monument, is a must if you are interested in history. Built in the second half of the 19th century and remodeled recently, is architecturally beautiful and the paintings on the ceiling are to enjoy them for a long time. Somewhere in the Christ of Mayo (ask for the story of this Christ) takes care of visitors to it and the altar of Santa Rita de Casia is one of the busiest. Regardless of your religious beliefs, you should visit this temple and encountered something of the history of our city.

  • I recommend visiting the Christ of May. I joined the Church and had many parishioners praying, what I did not expect in a day Thursday at 2 in the afternoon. Very simple and well preserved

  • This church was built by the order of the Augustinians. Inside is the image of the Lord of agony, also known as Christ in May. This image caught the attention of Catalina de Los Ríos and Lisperger, known as La Quintrala, woman accused of several deaths and abuse who requested to be buried in this church and in return made major donations of money, which helped its reconstruction. The current Temple was built after the great earthquake of 1647 and restored again after the quake occurred in 1730. The San Agustin Church was declared a national monument in 1981.
