“Outside beautiful, inside gloomy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

This church is painted a beautiful deep red on the outside, but I guess beauty is only skin deep. Inside is gloomy and dull with nothing that would set it apart from other churches, cathedrals etc.

“Nice church and museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

This is not as large a church or as extravagant as Cathedral in Place des Armes but the Museum is interesting. It is like most of the museums in Santiago that contain no English but if you ask the girl in the office she will print off a short description. There is a minimal fee to enter but it is a nice quiet place in the city.
