Nercón Church

Nercón Church

Enclavada en la isla grande de Chiloé, se destaca por la robustez de su torre, su fachada y la imagen tutelar del Arcángel San Miguel.
Su construcción finalizó en 1890, y recientemente fue restaurada abriéndose una sala de exposición en el coro y un corredor longitudinal desde donde se puede apreciar el sistema constructivo de la bóveda.

Nercón Church

 

It is feature by the width of its facade tower and its principal Saint's image of San Miguel with the devil fallen down at his feet. Acording to the tradition, the devil was not part of the original image, but had been carved by a villager from a trunk that had already got the shape naturally.

The present time construction of the church ended in 1890. The recent restoration made open a new exhibit hall in the chorus place, and a long corridor from where the whole system of some design can be observed.
