Churches of Chiloé Island Tour

Chiloé is an island apart from mainland Chile in more ways than one. A land of mist-shrouded hills steeped in folklore, Chiloé was the site of remarkable mingling between European and indigenous cultures. This cultural fusion is exemplified best in the island’s many colorful churches.

These excellent demonstrations of ecclesiastical wooden architecture were constructed in the 17th and 18th centuries. Each sports its own distinct color scheme, an intentional strategy that served to orient sailors out at sea.

Gaze up at towering steeples and move through hushed interiors. Dig into the heart and soul of the island by touring these churches, sixteen of which have been declared UNESCO World Heritage sites.
