The incredible Marble Cathedral, Aysen, Chilean Patagonia

The Carretera Austral is one of the most incredible circuits in the chilean Patagonia. An amazing route in the area called Aysen, in Chile. It´s a place for people interested in pure Patagonia, with unique lanscapes, lakes, mountains and glaciers. But today, I will focalize in a wonderful attraction in the area which is the Marble Cathedral.

15 km before arrive to Balmaceda, the Carretera Austral continues to the south to Parque Nacional Cerro Castillo, where attractions are Laguna Chiguay, la Piedra del conde and other rocky formations. Once you arrive to Puerto Tranquilo, a local village with basic services, accommodation, restaurants and fuel. From there, you can enjoy a wonderful visit to the incredible sanctuary of nature, called Marble Cathedral, a rocky formation made by wind and Lake General Carrera work. There are many chapels and cathedrals, in different areas, with amazing colors over blue/green color of the lake water.

From there, you can cross to Argentina and continue visiting Patagonia along 40 National Route, from Gobernador Gregores to the south, visiting the Caves of the Hands, Los Antiguos, El Chaltén and El Calafate.
