Museo Antiguo Monasterio del Espíritu Santo

Museum in Los Andes

The award for the most unintentionally bizarre museum displays in Middle Chile goes to this museum. Mannequins in nuns' habits re-create scenes from Santa Teresa's life: she took her vows in this ex-convent then died of typhus, aged 19.

Also celebrated is folk saint and preteen rebel Laura Vicuña, who willed herself to die because her widowed mother took a married lover.
