Located in the District of Nercón, on Isla Grande, District of Castro, it boasts stout lines in a Neo-Romanic style. The composition and proportions of its façade feature a new concept of constructive development. Inside, the imagery, the furniture and the marble-like paint of the ornaments provide its identity, and so does the tutor image of Archangel Michael.

It dates from 1890 and it has been subject to refurbishing works on several occasions in order to replace sections in poor preservation condition and to strengthen its structure. Its façade, tower, nave and vault have been restored by Fundación Amigos de las Iglesias de Chiloé.

Its patron saint is Our Lady of Grace and its feast is on September 8.
