The adobe, colonial-era Church of San Pedro dates to the early days of Catholicism in San Pedro de Atacama, but the village’s history stretches back much further.

The Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón overlooks the city of Puerto Varas, pristine Lake Llanquihue, and one of the Lake District’s stunning snowcapped volcanoes. The church, constructed during World War I, is modeled on the Marienkirche of Germany’s Black Forest and reveals Chile’s strong European roots. Most Chileans trace at least some of their ancestors back to Europe; only around 5 percent are indigenous peoples.
