Not to be missed in San Pedro de Atacama as it is one of the best you will see in this area. Wooden floors, Adobe construction and a masterpiece of a ceiling. Last visit here some 4 years ago it was white in color. Find the Square or Plaza and you have the location.

This is a very simple building inside which has a certain charm. There is obviously a lot of history how ever we were not there with a guide. If you are in San Pedro it's worth visiting the square and popping into the church for a quick look.

You probably should have a guide to get the full benefit of visiting this church. Many of the artifacts inside need an explanation from someone who knows the history. No admission fee...

Situated in the heart of the city of San Pedro de Atacama the church is a simply constructed building with an ornate alter space and 'quiet' areas for reflection and if you wish prayer. The ceiling structure is wooden and makes for a good photograph. What interested me the most was the old pipe organ up in the gallery which... More

I think its the overall simplicity of this church that drew me to it. Its unopposing from the outside, matching the building techniques of the other buildings around it. Inside the church is very simple in design, so it feels like you're in the 1800s. By far the greatest characteristic is the roof. Its a timber A frame design, but... More

The church of San Pedro is totally worth a visit. Compared to the size of the town rhis church is huge. The style is different compared to most other churches we have seen on our extensive travels in South America. It is placed very central at the main square, so if in San Pedro you will probably pass by anyway.

Enjoyed the wooden bars holding up the ceilings and cool interior. Not a long visit but appreciated the clean upkeep.

Beautiful little church. It opens after 10am, so don't go there earlybin the morning. It's in the center of the city, really easy to walk with children, just be careful with the bikes on the streets

This is old church next to the San Pedro plaza and is a great example of native architecture. It seems to be open to public and you can walk in during open hours. Good for a 10 minute walkthrough

When you are in the city centre, just walk in for a short bit. The church is small and quite nice to look at from the inside and outside. It is worth it to check it out.
