Fodor's Review

This red-and-white candy cane of a church was built in 1872, and although it looks like it's made of cement, it's actually constructed of Oregon pine. The adjacent Plaza Godoy has a statue of goatherder Juan Godoy, who accidentally discovered huge silver deposits in nearby Chañarcillo.
