Chile Life


Chileans are a mix of Spanish, Irish, English, German and Scottish immigrants and native Indians.

Spanish is Chile's official language, though a handful of native languages are still spoken. In the north, there are more than 20,000 speakers of Aymara, and in the south there are perhaps half a million speakers of Mapuche.
The most intriguing linguistic minority is the 2000-plus speakers of Rapa Nui, the Polynesian language of most of Easter Island's population.

Over 90% of the population is Roman Catholic, though evangelical Protestantism is becoming increasingly popular.
The country's Catholic architecture is impressive and ubiquitous, from grandiose colonial churches to roadside shrines, some of which are extraordinary manifestations of folk art.
