The Central Valley Sights

Iglesia de la Merced

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

A block north of the plaza along Calle Estado is this 18th-century church that was declared a national monument not only for its beauty but also because of its place in the city's fateful history. It was in this bell tower that O'Higgins waited in vain for reinforcements during the battle for independence. The twin spires, in a somber neoclassical style, are a fitting memorial. This building suffered significant damage during the February 2010 earthquake and, as of this

writing, was closed until further notice. Please check to see if the property has opened prior to your visit.
