Templo Votivo de Maipú - Historical Building Santiago - Chile

Templo Votivo de Maipú, built between 1944 and 1974, is a huge Catholic temple erected on a historical site that dates back to the early 1800s. Bernardo O’Higgins commissioned a church dedicated the Virgen del Carmen to commemorate Chile’s success in the Maipú battlefields and the country’s progression toward independence. O’Higgins relied on public donations and the construction was never really finished. Today you can still see the ruins of the original ill-fated church.
