Chiloé Churches

Churches on the Chilean archipelago of Chiloé are made entirely in native timber and often covered with wood shingles. Since the year 2000 they have been classed as UNESCO World Heritage sites and are one of the most prominent examples of Chilota architecture. They represent a fusion of Spanish and Jesuit culture, each one a time capsule of local craftsmanship and skill from when they were built in the 18th and 19th centuries.
