Certainly not for its beauty, both to stay in America, cannot remotely compare with the elegance of cast iron Church created by Eiffel about 20 years earlier to Arica in Chile (then still part of Peru). In Greece in 1882 the previous masonry Church was destroyed by an earthquake; This justifies the choice so innovative to order in 1891 a prefabricated metal church in Belgium by the Société de Cuillet. How Italian it struck me that this company, then a coal mining and metallurgical giant, used coal mine of Marcinelle, where in 1956 died 262 miners, most of them Italians.

  • See until a pass, to make a few photos if in the mood you. A beautiful see costa which is a rather young country and has very few churches.
