This is a beautiful church that is very different in it’s look and feel. Reminds me of a small version of the cathedral in Barcelona. Love the stained glass windows.

If you going to Santiago, you shouldn't miss it! The Templo is amazing. It is located in Maipu, around 30 minutes from the downtown if you take the subway. The architecture is simply beautiful. It is not a touristic area, but you will love!
