The church was built by carpenters from Chiloé under supervision from Salvador Sierpe. A few minutes later walk to the Regional Museum which houses a well-organized collection of Huilliche relics, musical instruments, traditional farm implements and Chilota wooden boat models, and exhibits on the evolution of Chiloé's towns. 

Continue downhill to the rich handicraft market to shop and admire the local artisanal work before continuing to the pier.
