22 San Francisco Church Bell Tower in Santiago, Chile

When the San Francisco Church was built in 1622 it became Chile’s first Catholic church. It replaced a chapel commissioned in the mid-16th century by Pedro de Valdivia, the Spanish founder of Santiago. This classic bell and clock tower was rebuilt in 1857 after the previous two were destroyed by earthquakes.
