Trip Planner: South America / Chile / Los Lagos Region / Isla Chiloe / Castro / Church of San Francisco
Originally built in 1567 to convert the indigenous people, Church of San Francisco now serves as the city's main Catholic church. Designed in the Neo-Gothic style of architecture, the church differs greatly in appearance from others in the city. Its structure consists of local wood, while the facade, roof, and external lining are all made of galvanized iron. The brightly painted exterior makes it stand out among the other buildings on the adjacent plaza. When you tour the interior, look for the image of the Archangel Michael victorious over Satan, and try to visit during a service to sit among the wooden pews and admire the stained glass windows.

The work of the wood in conjunction with the interior luminosity give it an unrivalled aspect of welcome and spirituality. What is necessary is that visitors, in some cases, be respectful of this place of prayer for believers, because this visit is unpleasant when on the entrance staircase there are people eating or asking for money.
The woodwork of the interior is simply stunning. You must get inside this church if you are here. It's one of the most gorgeous churches that I've ever seen.
Impressive interior, well maintained, quiet and for free!
