Distinctive for its nine-arched entry and splendid view, this late 19th-century church is tiled on the outside with silver-toned native wood, like other Chiloe churches.

After spending two wonderful days touring Quinchoa Island we caught the tiny ferry back to Dalcahue and parked our motor caravan 'Mickey' outside this interesting church. After looking around the church's interior we walked two blocks to see part of the Dalcahue Rodeo. The part we saw was about about teams of two Gauchos using their horses to control a... More

This is a church that definitely needs some TLC, but I loved the arches in the front. The neat thing about all of the churches we visited is that the native Artisans of the islands brought their craftsmanship to the building of these churches and blended what they knew with the European techniques of the priests and missionaries. All of... More

Worth a quick look round as you come off the ferry and make your way to Ancud. Inside was fairly plain compared to other examples of churches that abound on the island but it is a good introduction to this type of wooden architecture.

We were disappointed by this church, it was clearly run and down and in desperate need of a restoration. It was dark and dank and smelled musty. Even though it's a UNESCO site, it's in need some TLC. It's not worth a specific visit, if you're passing through on your way to Achao, maybe stop by, but if you're short... More

While exploring the island of Chiloe, we deciding to go further and visit small little villages apart form the main big ones, as this was possible having a rented car. Dalcahue was surprisingly beautiful. Has a market, great big oysters to eat, just next to the water, and it was here where we saw the first wooden church, Unesco heritage.... More

Definitely worth a look. Impressive in its size and woodwork, feels very peaceful. UNESCO protected site in a quiet square.

The most elegant church I have seen. This s the third most beautiful and one of the oldest church of Chiloe after Castro and Achao. A beautiful, peaceful place at the bank of the pacific island where you can worship the GOD and may get your all wish fulfilled :)

Nice little town, we did a day tour of the Island of Chiloe so by the time we got to Dalcahue to see the church it was closed..

This small church is the least visited on the Island of Chiloe, yet has a very special history of the culture in a painting on the wall next to the door
