The Isla Grande De Chiloé is located off the west coast of southern Chile in the Pacific Ocean. It features amazing timber-built churches, an undulating landscape and villages supported by posts.

In the small village of Chacao there is a large wooden church one of more than a hundred and fifty that are scattered across the island. Two wooden towers with blue peaks flank the main entrance gate. Striking architecture that unites European design with that of this region. Everything is made of wood with not a single nail used. Fourteen of the churches have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites since the year 2000.

When in 1567 the Spaniard, Francisco De Ulloa, discovered the island, he founded Castro, its imposing cathedral having been built in 1906. It has two pointed towers on its façade and the main building is coloured salmon pink. The church's interior contains brownish colours with circular wooden columns and a beautiful, carved altar.

Castro is the island’s oldest town and also the capital of Chiloé Province. Along the waterfront are numerous colourful wooden houses on posts, the Palafitos. When viewed from the street, the houses look like normal buildings but from the coast it can be seen that they are supported by wooden posts. 

Fairies and trolls, wizards and witches, they all live on in the island’s legends and the old myths and legends that combined with the Catholic religion created their own culture in simple wooden churches in which the islanders loyally shared their faith.
