The same street leads to Saint Francis' Church. Declared World National Heritage and Monument, the beauty of this temple built in 1910 stands out from the rest of the churches in Chiloé. After beholding it, visitors may go down San Martín Street up to Sotomayor heading for the seafront.

The colorful palafittes dominate the coast scenery, where several restaurants offer irresistible seafood dishes and other typical specialties such as casseroles and smoked fish at very accessible prices. Very close, next to the pier, stands the Lillo handicrafts market, ideal to purchase some crafts carved in wood, attractive woven textiles from Chiloé and other souvenirs made by native hands.
