the best thing to see in town, the most brightly painted exterior to a church that I have ever seen.

“Worth a look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Dominating the town square of Castro, this large church is easily identifiable by the vivid colours of yellow and blue that adorn the outside. Once inside you cannot but admire the intricate wood carvings - in fact it is all wood and a testament to the building skills that all is still standing. Worth a visit

“Surprising”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

One of the biggest Church, completed restored, outside the yellow bright color surprise and the incredible wooden work inside is an opposite sensation of calm and show you one of the best of all the churches in the island, don't miss it if you go to Castro.

“Best church on the island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Gaudy exterior, gorgeous interior! If you only go to one church on the island of Chiloé, make it this one. It's fully restored, inside and out and stunning. Two thumbs up! Bring a panoramic camera if you can.
