San Pedro de Atacama church Nov 07, 2013
San Pedro de Atacama church is located behind a small square and right next to the government offices and medical center. It is a small and simple church with one bell tower, made of thick mud walls and painted against weather condition. If you don’t put the paint on the mud walls, they usually fall apart very quickly due to the wind damage. The most interesting part of the church was the roof and they way they used cactus threes to make supporting beams. It is logical for them to use cactus, but I have never seen such a large pieces of cactus utilized in the building. I wish that I have been in the church during the mass or a church holiday to observe the dress codes and the way people behave. Maybe next time :)
