  • Small church carved into the rock overlooking the sea. You go down a lot of stairs and the visit takes some minutes but it is worth it. The church is a gem for everyone, not only for religious ones.

  • My grand grand father was a sailor and has sailed over the Cap Horn. That's why I has a closer relation to those sailors reached this point after their ship crashed. You can here and feel the see while standing inside the church.
  • Actually a very nice place to visit. And a good chance to support local business as you not only pay for the entrance (about 2-3 Euro), but as well for the parking place (5€) 😂 there's this beautiful church with figures carved in stone in glorious light and out there in front is a beautiful beach to enjoy
