Templo Votivo de Maipu, Santiago

3.9
History and architecture enthusiasts love Templo Votivo de Maipu, a grandiose church built in honor of Our Lady Carmen and Bernardo O'Higgins, a 19th-century Chilean independence leader. The church was commissioned in the 1940s as part of a nationwide competition to devise a new national monument and mark O'Higgins' efforts in Chile's independence. Plan my Santiago trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • This is a beautiful church that is very different in it’s look and feel. Reminds me of a small version of the cathedral in Barcelona. Love the stained glass windows.  more »
  • I went a few days ago to a first communion ceremony at the temple. It is beautiful, and a very powerful energy generated. It is a place full of history, and the religiousness of the faithful ranging complements it. It is not easy to get from the center of Santiago, but it can be an interesting experience for those who are looking for religious or historic tourism.
