Stained glass in the Cathedral of La Serena, Chile

This church located on Plaza de Armas was built in the 19th century and is similar to European churches. Maybe because it was designed by the French architect Herbage. All tough not visible from the exterior, the stained glass art work was for us the most attractive element of the church. Next to that the arched painted ceiling and organ were also eye catchers.

Deze kerk gelegen op Plaza de Armas werd gebouwd gedurende de 19de eeuw en vertoont gelijkenissen met Europese kerken. Misschien omdat ze werd ontworpen door de Franse architect Herbage. Alhoewel dit niet zichtbaar is aan de buitenzijde vonden we de sierglazen de meest attractieve elementen van de kerk. Daarnaast konden we zeker het orgel en plafond waarderen.
