Churches of Chiloé

Castro Church

Located right opposite the square in the City of Castro, capital of Isla Grande, it dates back to 1567, when the first temple known as James Apostle was raised and it became the evangelization center of the population of the archipelago.

It was hit by fire and destruction until the present Church of Saint Francis of Castro was built in 1912. This is one of the most important on the island. It was designed by an Italian architect in the Neo-Gothic style following the local building tradition. It was restored to consolidate the structure of the towers.

Its feast is on October 4.

Fly Fishing

It is inevitable that we use passion to speak about fishing. A passion that invades each of us, anglers, in a different way, but usually by means of anecdotes or experiences.
Not only is fly-fishing passionate, but it also surpasses passion to such an extent that it is hard to put it into words. It can be told, like I am telling you at this very moment, but experience is and must be personal, always

Nautical Activities

The beauty of the lakes located in the Patagonian area or the large sea bathing its Atlantic coast offer the ideal frame for the practice of nautical sports.
Surfing is a very complete sport, which forces sportsmen to train. It is intriguing, exciting, exhausting and it breaks with the activities you can perform on solid ground.
Cold blood and steel nerves are required in order to practice kayaking.
