Destroyed by the riots
Jan 2020 • Couples
Unfortunately Santiago is a sad place now and nothing much untouched by the riots and graffiti. The Church is ruined and Lastarria is quite damaged.

Two wonderful masses for the price of one ;)
Sep 2019
We arrived for Saturday evening mass at 19:00 and were treated to a catholic wedding in progress. So we enjoyed the final twenty minutes before our mass began shortly after 19:00.

It was a real extra treat for us. The church is a very different almost burgundy colour. It’s neoclassical in style if that matters to you.

The church is small but beautiful inside and both masses were wonderful. It was one of many hilights of our visit to Santiago;)

Beautiful Church building in Lastarria neighbourhood
Jan 2017 • Solo
The Church of Veracruz.
It is located in the Lastarria district of Santiago de Chile in a property that, according to a myth of dubious origin, would have been the location of the residence of the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia.
Its construction began in 1852 and was completed in 1857. The church is small and the beautiful façade is of Neo-classical style with Doric elements. The church holds the relic of a piece of wood donated by King Charles V of Spain that supposedly would have been part of the cross of Jesus. In the main altar there is a figure of a colonial Christ that dates from the XVII century.
Because of their historic and architectural value, the church and two contiguous houses were declared National Monument of Chile in 1983.

Quaint little church
Oct 2016 • Friends
This was one cool quaint little church that we bumped into while wondering the streets. It us not too big, but very beautiful. Worth stopping by if you have 5 minutes.

Small church in Barrio Lastarria
Sep 2014 • Solo
Built in 1857 and situated on Jose Victorino Lastarria amongst restaurants and cafes, this catholic church has an eye-catching bright red exterior and a basic, but serene interior. It was declared a historical monument in 1983. You can easily combine a visit here with Cerro Santa Lucia, Museo de Artes Visuales and Centro Gabriela Mistral (GAM), which are all within close walking distance. Metro: Universidad Catolica.
