The Church of San Juan Bautista de San Juan de Coquihuil (Spanish: Iglesia de San Juan Bautista de San Juan de Coquihuil) is a Roman Catholic church located in the Chilean hamlet of San Juan, commune of Dalcahue in Chiloé Island. Commonly referred to as «Church of San Juan» —Spanish: Iglesia de San Juan—, is within the Diocese of Ancud; its construction was finished around 1887.[1]

This church is one of the 16 traditional Chiloé wooden churches built in the 18th and 19th centuries that were declared as a World Heritage site under Churches of Chiloé's denomination[2] because of their unique form of wooden architecture known as the Chilota School of Religious Architecture on Wood.[1][3]
