Religious Sights in Santiago

Santiago has many picturesque churches, both Catholic and Protestant, as well as many store-front evangelical churches that may be of interest to visitors. Certainly the main interest for most people coming to Latin America is the grand cathedrals and lesser churches with their imposing steeples and other iconographic architecture. Many of the churches in Santiago may be visited at any time of day and house various religious artifacts, some used to this day in the mass service. Many of the churches look particularly stunning at night when they are illuminated against the fading Santiago sky. There are also a handful of other houses of worship, including synogogues, a hindu temple and mosques.
