Welcome to Chacas
This ornate mountain town sits atop a hillcrest at 3360m, surrounded by fertile hills and with guest appearances by the occasional snowcapped Cordillera peak. The charismatic main plaza is dominated by a brilliant church built by a religious nonprofit Italian aid organization, Don Bosco, based in Marcará and established by the pioneering Padre Ugo De Censi, a priest of the Salesian order. As a result, the town has a strong Italian influence; since 2016, it has even had its own Italian consulate.
