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.

Alto Vista Chapel Reviews
Mooie Serene plek, een mooie, goed onderhouden kapel. Voor de kapel 2 of 3 kraampjes waar je een kaarsje kan kopen om aan te steken en een lekkere verkoelende kokosnoot of een stuk fruit kan kopen. more »Lovely Serene Place, a nice, well maintained chapel. For the Chapel 2 or 3 stalls where you can buy a candle to light and buy a nice cool coconut or a piece of fruit.
What an amazing point of interest that had a look out view worth seeing over and over again. The history of this location is worth the visit. more »
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.
