La Parroquia San Vicente Ferrer
Santiago’s La Parroquia San Vicente Ferrer is a beautiful whitewashed church and national monument that appeared on Chile’s 2,000 peso banknote from 1997-2010. Just to the side of San Vicente Ferrer church, you’ll find Los Dominicos Village — the popular arts, crafts, and antiques market that first opened in a section of the old convent in 1983.
While the official name of the church is La Iglesia San Vicente Ferrer, if you’re asking for directions to get here, you might just want to call it “Iglesia de los Dominicos” (Church of the Dominicans) like the locals do. What’s in the name? The church used to belong to the Dominican Order, and it was a group of Dominican monks who first began construction of the church and adjacent convent back in 1809.
