The Church of Tenaún or Church of Our Lady of Patrocinio (Patronage)— Spanish: Iglesia de Tenaún, Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Patrocinio— is a Catholic church located in the town of Tenaún, commune of Dalcahue on the Chiloé Archipelago, Los Lagos Region, southern Chile.
“Tenaún” means “three peaks” in the native language of the area, and it is believed that the church’s three pillars symbolize this. The patron saint of the Church of Tenaún is Our Lady of Patrocinio, whose feast day is celebrated on January 30.
