Churches of Chiloé

Tenaún Church

It is located on Isla Grande, in the Town of Tenaún, District of Dalcahue, right opposite the square. "Tenaún" stands for "three hills" in the native tongue and it is believed that its three towers have to do with this name. Its position with respect to the shore differs from what happens in other towns.

Its patron Saint is Our Lady of Patronage and its festival is on January 30.
According to some Jesuit records, a chapel was raised in 1767 and the present one was not built until 1845. In turn, its façade, tower, nave and vault have been restored by Fundación Amigos de las Iglesias de Chiloé.

Horseback Excursions

Those who wish to experiment something new may choose a horseback ride over mountains, amidst forests, along beaches or across streams with the whole family enjoying beautiful moments.
It is ideal to go on these excursions guided by the local experts and on docile Creole horses.
If you are going on a short excursion, it is not necessary that you can ride. A quick theoretical chat with the guide will be enough for you to get used to the reins.
