“A true gem.”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

The ornate interior testifies to Chile's wealth of natural resources. The statue of the Virgin Mary that is supposed to be towering over the entrance is currently displayed inside the church. She fell to the ground during the most recent earthquake. At least now you can admire her up close.

Beautiful church especially there was a mass going on and the singing was a very spiritual experience.

“Cathedral: a place you'll never missed”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Downtown's must to visit place. Chileans go daily to pray to Virgen del Carmen chapel (left inside the Cathedral). Recently refurbished. Last weekend of september is the feast of Virgen del Carmen. A must if you are in Santiago in those days.

Don't rush through here. We went the week after Easter and greatly enjoyed looking at the artwork throughout the church.
