Colo Church

Colo Church

Ubicada en la ciudad homónima de la Isla Grande, su santo Patrono es San Antonio, cuya fiesta es el 13 de junio .
Fue construida en 1890 habiéndose conservado en buen estado, estimándose que no ha sufrido alteraciones formales y materiales importantes.
Su fachada principal se destaca por el pórtico que remata en un medio arco hacia los dos extremos generando un frente que difiere del tradicional en otras iglesias de Chiloé, ocurriendo lo mismo en la iglesia de Quicaví.
Se encuentra de espaldas al mar, vecina al cementerio y con la explanda de acceso limitada por las casas del pueblo.

Colo Church

 

The church of Colo was built around 1890. Though there are no records, it is believed that since the construction it has got some important modifications. It is featured by its entrance door in the middle of two archs, which gives it a special aspect that differs from the typology of the churches in Chiloé. This characteristic is present only in Colo and Quicaví churches. Located at the end of the main road, with a sea background, next to the cementery and by the entrance of the village.
