Visitors to Santiago can take a trip back in time just by walking through the doors of the famous San Francisco Church (Iglesia de San Francisco). This iconic church ranks among the city's oldest and most beautiful religious structures, dating back to the original Spanish settlements.
Marvel at the bold and imposing red exterior, then enter to find soft yellows, blues and whites decorating the interior. Learn from your guide about the legend of the statue of Virgen del Socorro and savor the silence of the church, where you can spend some time in quiet meditation or prayer before returning to the hustle of Santiago city streets.
The church is located near Centro Cultural Gabriela Mistral, next to Parque San Borja.
