Templo Votivo de Maipu, Santiago

4.1
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.

  • 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.

  • This temple is located in the commune of Maipú, was built on the land where the battle of Maipú, was this is a quiet place, where not there so much to do in this place, only you can visit its small museum and a viewpoint toward the commune , I do not recommend visiting it with children, because it is not an attraction that has many interesting things and may get bored during his visit.

  • Beatifull zone..
  • A place full of spirituality. A place to find mother and snuggle into his arms as a child who needs your love. A place to talk and a place of silence to listen to it, the place is touchingly beautiful.

  • It is a monument that remembers the battle of Maipú, work of the architect Juan Martínez, winner of a contest in 1943. It depicts the Virgin of Carmen that embraces the Maipú commune with his arms. Its construction lasted more than thirty years, until its inauguration on October 24, 1974. Here you can also see the ancient walls of the first Temple in the year 1818 and which took 64 years to be completed due to lack of resources. Fulfilling the promise of Bernardo O'Higgins to the Virgen del Carmen.
