Chiloe Sights

Isla Lemuy

Fodor's Review

Though easily reached by a 15-minute ferry ride from Chonchi, Isla Lemuy feels miles away from anything. In reality, this is remote countryside. It's the third largest of Chiloé's islands, just slightly smaller than Isla Quinchao to the north. Jesuit churches dominate three of its villages—Ichuac, Aldachildo, and Detif—none of which have more than a handful of houses. Detif's church, open only for Sunday morning Mass, is noteworthy for its "votive boats"—small wooden

ship models hung in thanksgiving for a safe journey. From this church there's a stunning view of Volcán Michinmahuida on the mainland.
