  • 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

  • It is an excellent site that I recommend very much for its valuable historical for Chile, since it was built in memory to the virgen del Carmen and is ideal for know, because you can go to the masses carried out there, the Museum and a viewpoint from where you can see the Maipú commune, also at the entrance you can see part of what was the chapel of the victory , making it a very striking attraction from outside.
