The True Cross

The Veracruz Church is located in José Victorino Lastarria street. It was built in 1855 by the french architect (again...) Claude Brunet Des Baines, as an approach sign to Spain, after the battles that led to Chilean independence.
It was named Veracruz, that means "True Cross", because inside the church is kept a wood chip that is supposed to belong to the cross where Jesus Christ died.

Dear Daily Photo blogger. I'm sorry for the generic message, but I wanted to get this to as many of you as possible.

I have set up "The Daily Photo Spot" on Fanpop. If you go there, you can enter your specific City Daily Photo blog (Add link). Paris, London and Dubai are already there, so it would be great to see all of you DP Bloggers listed.

While you are there, vote for the others!
