Iglesia de Tenaún

Iglesia de Tenaún Review

The small fishing village of Tenaún, 7 km (4 mi) south of Quicaví, is notable for its 1861 neoclassical Iglesia de Tenaún, on the Plaza de Armas, which replaced the original 1734 structure built by the Jesuits. The style differs markedly from that of other Chilote churches, as the two towers flanking the usual hexagonal central bell tower are painted a striking deep blue. You can see the interior during services on Sunday at 9:30 am and the rest of the week at 5 pm.
