Churches of the Altiplano

.

Churches of the Altiplano is part of the Tentative list of Chile in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Churches of the Altiplano are the product of the encounter between the colonial Spanish and the indigenous Tarapaca. From the late 16th century on over 50 small chapels and churches were built by missionaries in the "Andean mestizo" style. They all are simple in their design, with use of stone, adobe, wood and straw.
