  • The Church, in addition to beautiful, has a very interesting story. It was the only one for the time of the discovery that survived the earthquake. They said it was precisely because of the image of our Lady brought from Spain by the Pedro de Valdivia, and that, to date, has been at the scene. The colonial Museum, which is next, is also very beautiful. The building is the garden, alone, I enchant the visitor. But the religious collection is also great and very old. There is an explanatory video at the beginning of the visitation suitable also for people with hearing or visual disabilities. It costs 1000 pesos per person.
