Just across the street (Alameda), with wooden floors. We were delighted to see the ceiling and the altars. On one side is the Colonial Museum. I thanked San Antonio de Padua for letting us visit Santiago

I have always found this church to be intersting. The fascinating part is that it is quite large and made of adobe. Even so, it has withstood centuries of earthquakes. The church is almost as old as Santiago itself. One of the few churches I have seen that is red.

Very nice, but need a restoration.
We can see wonderful paintings about St Francis Life

We enjoyed this church, particularly because we arrived just before Mass and enjoyed sharing this celebration with the small, weekday congregation. A beautiful ceiling and side chapels make this old church special. The adjacent museum is not much, but the small fee (about US$2) does allow access to the cloister, which is worth a visit. Out in front of the church and museum (no need to pay admission), look for the carved head from Easter Island.
