  • It is one of the buildings most symbolic of Chile and a milestone in the country is an imenso temple dedicated to the virgen de el Carmen, in its exterior are the ruins of the first temple, has gardens, religious Museum and a top payment which is cheap (no more than 1000 pesos). This something far away from the center of the city but is easy to reach by metro line 5 station plaza de Maipú
