San Juan Church

San Juan Church

Ubicada en el poblado de San Juan en la Isla Grande de Chiloé, esta abrigada por la ensenada donde desemboca el río San Juan , y se emplaza paralela al mar, quedando muy cerca del agua en marea alta.
El edificio data de 1887 y fue reconstruida en la década del 60 debido a deterioros por los movimientos sísmicos, modificándose su arquería del pórtico y la torre.

San Juan Church

 

San Juan village is located in sheltered bay, bathed by San Juan river, surrounding by mounts and a beach that turns completely dry during the low tide. Its geographical conditions have facilitated activities such as boat constuctions and repearings. It is located parrallel to the seashore, very close to the see at high tides. The position, in regards to the coast, makes it outstand clearly from the oceans. Its constructuion dates from 1887 and its most important modification was made in the decade of 1960, when changes in the front arch and the tower were made.
