All Chiloe Island Tours
A unique representation of the Jesuit Peripatetic Mission tradition in the 17th and 18th centuries, the churches of Chiloe offer an unmatched fusion of indigenous and European styles and culture. The churches’ designs include traditional (European) basilican layouts with vaulted ceilings and, reflective of the native style, are built entirely out of finely crafted wood. Woodworking and building is a cultural pride of Chiloe and has been passed on through countless generations.
Churches of Chiloe Island
These churches, exceptionally beautiful and traditionally built from local hardwood, colorfully painted and reminiscent of Europe’s basilicas, are each individual works of art and reflect the historical timeline of the area; they simply cannot be missed. The wooden churches of Chiloe are stunningly beautiful, and the island where they are located is well worth a visit too. Spend a long weekend taking life in the slow lane, at the pace of the fishers and family communities who have lived here for centuries.
