Off to one side in the central square sits this 500 year old church. The front shows the straw used in construction of the brick work. A modest church inside lacking the lavish adornments of most churches it has a nice feel about it.

Visited this church at the town square. It is a nice church but not exceptional. Still if walking in the town it is the nicest thing to see in a few minutes.

Located in the center of the town the church is well worth a visit. Look for the roof beams made from cactus and the old bell just inside the main entrance.

Set in the centre of the town, this mud church is the third oldest in Chile. You rarely see places like this anymore when you can stroll in and experience it all. It's very special. Entry is by donation on the wall.

It's a beautifull, very small colonial church. It has saint figures of the XV century and it has been recently renovated. It's in the center of San Pedro at a side of the plaza.

This lovely little church nestled in a beautiful town Square has got to be seen for the architecture alone. Seeing the traditional building materials and the beauty that's gone into building this church is delightful

Can't miss this if you're walking around. Nice church alot of shops and restaurants around. Try to save money by shopping around and not taking first price given.

Mit die Renovierung hat sich verbessert die heilige Kirche..!! Look for the Cactus Wood and the hidden sincretism not only looking, you have to observe to discover the real meaning of his images or messages.. Discover the real atacamenian culture.. Be my guest.. Alexalltraks

Easy to visit by town square and no charge just a small donation. A restful place within the main town site

Recently restored and worth going in to see the ceiling, if anything else. It's made of cactus wood. Simple, adobe style. A peaceful spot on the often busy town plaza.

Hi, sorry I don't know but they do have a Facebook page Church-of-San-Pedro-de-Atacama which should be easy enough to find. I hope that is of some help.
