Puerto Varas was founded in 1854 by German immigrants, and the German influence on the town is evident in its architecture and culture. We stayed in a charming little cabaña (Cabaña Tirol) which captured the spirit of the town. The town's most famous Teutonic building is the Iglesia Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, which is a to-scale replica of a church in Germany's Black Forest. It is made entirely of wood.
