The Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de los Dolores de Dalcahue (in English, Church of Our Lady of Sorrows, or Church of Our Lady of Dolours of Dalcahue) is a Catholic church located in the Plaza de Armas of the town of Dalcahue, on Chiloé Island, Chile.

The Church of Our Lady of Sorrows was declared a National Monument of Chile in 1971[1] and is one of the 16 Churches of Chiloé that were declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites on 30 November 2000.[2]

It was built at the end of the 19th century in a site formerly occupied by a Jesuit missionary chapel.[3]

This church leads one of the 24 parishes that form the Diocese of Ancud.[4]
