Rilán Church

Rilán Church

Emplazada en la Plaza de Rilán dentro de la Isla Grande, esta dedicada a Ntra. Sra. De Lourdes cuya festividad es el 11 de febrero.
Sus antecedentes más lejanos se remontan a 1658 ya que las descripciones de los misioneros de la época la describen como " buena iglesia , muchos españoles e indios" . El actual templo fue edificado a comienzos del siglo XX habiéndose bendecido la piedra fundamental el 12 de diciembre de 1907, para luego en 1990 realizarse tareas de reconstrucción y restauración .
Se destaca su bóveda de crucería, y la gran explanada de su frente que conforma la plaza del pueblo.

Rilán Church

 

Its former building was the chapel of Rilán which dates from 1658. The missionaries used to refer to it as "good church, many Spaniards and indians". The present temple was built in the maturity period of the School of Chiloé, by the beginning of XX century. The first stone blessing was done on December 12 1907. However building and remodeling works were made until 1990. Its construction is outstanding for the crossed dome. It stands on an esplanade which is nowadays the main square of town. The access is orientated to the South, facing the sea, at one block from the coast.
