Church of Ichuac
Located on the island of Lemuy, in the town of Ichuac, the patron saint of this church is the Virgen de la Candelaria, and its fiesta is on 2 February.
The church, built at the beginning of the 20th Century, is in a good state of repair, thanks to maintenance carried out by the community. This is a center of activity for the town, where the old traditions are preserved.
It is built with cypress and alerce wood, and its tower has two bells. There is a clock in the portico that shows the time as 3pm, the time that Christ died, or, perhaps, the time the earthquake of 1960 struck.
It was declared a National Monument in 1999 and a World Heritage site by UNESCO in December 2000.
