We like to visit local houses of worship during our world travels. Iglesia Luterana de La Santa Cruz de Valparaiso was not a destination, but rather an opportunity during our visit to Valparaiso .

We were shown the Lutheran Church in Valparaiso from across the other side of the gorge(?), near the entry to the 'Ascensor Reina Victoria" funicular railway down. Certainly looked fantastic and a great view.

Lovely building full of history and the symbol of a time gone when Catholics could not have other people around. Thank God this has changed and now this building is as impressive as any Catholic church. Worth seeing and getting to know about it.

We went there as part of the Valparaiso Free Tour. It was the first non-Catholic church built in the city. As such, they didn't even put a cross on it, trying to maintain a low profile. It's in an interesting area of Valparaiso. Worth walking...More

Great historical building and well preserved. Amazing neighbourhood with good restaurants. A beautiful church which add a lot of personality to the city.

This is a nice but not great church in the Conception neighborhood (British and German mainly). See it on a walking tour of the area - not worth a special trip

Saw it a few times on our walk around the area and really were not in awe by it. The colors are cool and the architectural design is good, but didnt even feel like taking a single picture of it.
