Catedral de Chillan, Chillan

4.5
#1 of 13 in Historic Sites in Biobio Region
Survey the idiosyncratic architecture of Catedral de Chillan, a cathedral built in the mid 19th century as a tribute to the almost 6,000 lives lost in the massive 1939 earthquake that devastated the city of Chillán. The 11 parabolic arcs that adorn the structure act as thoroughly modernist, emblematic, and striking features of the church, built to represent prayer and interwoven hands. Head inside to see how natural light seeps in throughout the length of the church. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Chillan fast, fun, and easy.

  • New and modern church built a few years ago, not a tourist spot to visit, nor do I know why it is here.

  • It is a very interesting place with a unique architecture, next to the very nice and traditional pñaza worth visiting
