  • The votive Temple of Maipú is located in the commune of the same name in the land where the battle of Maipú, led by José de San Martín and Bernardo Ohiggins took place and that milestone the independence of Chile. The temple is located in a vast plain with green areas where you can stroll and relax, in front of him are the remains of the old church that was sent out to build to thank the Virgin for the victory of the battle of Maipú and independence. In the temple there is a Museum and a viewpoint from where you can appreciate the commune from the heights.
