Alto Vista Chapel, Noord
Visit a small but storied place of worship at Alto Vista Chapel. Originally consecrated in 1750, the chapel was central to the mission of Domingo Silvestre, a Venezuelan missionary. Rebuilt on numerous occasions after extreme weather or abandonment, the modern-day chapel was completed in 1952 and displays a quirky neo-colonial architectural style, with a bright yellow exterior and tapering walls. Take a step inside to admire the hand-carved altar, a neo-gothic artwork created in 1870. The surrounding desert landscape of cactuses and sand frames the chapel, giving it the air of a refuge from the harsh conditions.

E' la prima chiesa cristiana costriuta in Aruba. E' piccola ma è in cima ad una collina e tutto intorno una vista bellissima.

It's small but it's on top of a hill and all around a beautiful view. Very collected so that you can pray in peace. In addition the church is kept very well, beautiful and clean.
A fun place to explore for a couple of minutes. Mostly just another stop for tours to advertise about although adds some nice island history to the tours. Definitely not worth going out of your way to see but if it's on the way to better things might as well stop
So beautiful!! The Stations of the Cross are amazing and very colorful. This is the smallest Catholic Church on the island.
