Worth the small climb up to the church. It's interior is impressive and, more importantly, it's a calming and inspiring place too.

We visited this morning. This church reminds you of churches in Germany, but there it is in the Lake District of Chile! Very attractive interior and stands out from the neighbourhood like a beacon. Lovely.

Imposing church with an unexpected colorful interior - whoever is interested in churches will have a field day with all the different churches that can be found from Puerto Varas all the way down to Castro in Chiloe!

Worth the climb as it is up rather a steep hill. The church has very interesting decoration and is beautifully finished. the view from there over Puerto Varas is good too.

Built on wood by the settlers, the church looks like an inverted ship. Well care for. Our guide contacted the right local person and got it opened for our group. Worth the wait!
