As beautiful as the billing
Feb. 2020
As beautiful as the billing of this old wooden church in downtown - right off the center square. A lover of doors all around the world, I loved the old church doors.

Great wooden church
Feb. 2020
Although not the biggest wooden church of the archipel, nor the cathedral, this is a large and impressive church, constructed entirely from wood. The style is not the typical style of wooden churches on the island, but it is still listed as one of the 16 churches listed by UNESCO. The outside is nice, but the interior is beautiful and well proportioned, very well worth seeing.

A serene and calm atmosphere
Feb. 2020
We visited the church in a rainy morning so there were not any tourists around. It is truly an impressive church and one that provokes calm and serenity. Driving around Chiloe you come across many of these protected wooden churches the island is famous for and each one has its own distinct characteristic.

Beautiful wooden church
Feb. 2020 • Friends
Definitely the highlight of Chiloe and Castro. This is the most impressive of the churches on the island (UNESCO world cultural heritage!).
The sheer size and the beautiful decoration is impressive. In parts way more impressive than most "normal" churches. If you're around this is a must do!!!

Beautiful old church!

We stopped by and had a tour of this old church right in the town Center of Castro.

It’s well worth a visit if you’re in Castro.

Fascinating - but avoid the tour buses!
Nov. 2019 • Couples
This is a popular spot, so time your visit well....go and have a coffee if there are coaches outside! Impressive from the outside, with its bright yellow exterior with metal cladding, but the inside is quite extraordinary. The wooden vaulting, and dome above the altar are incredible. Well worth a visit.
