Alto Vista Chapel, Noord
(3.9/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We were able to visit the chapel during our Land Rover Tour under the direction of our Tour Guide Greg Brown. The experience was very moving and greatly appreciated. 
  • The Chapel is worth a quick visit. Has only two stalls with stalls selling souvenirs and water. It's too warm. The Chapel is small, simple and beautiful. I don't consider unmissable, but who has time or is religious, it's worth it!

  • There are outdoor pews for the larger congregation. The drive from Noord only takes a few minutes. You can carry on over the awful road to the lighthouse if you are brave!

  • Nog that special. It's ok. Nice to see
  • Nice place for cool photos. Easily accessible. Food and refreshments are available by vendors.
  • This small but lovely gem chapel sits on the north coast, overlooking the sea. The roads that lead to it are paved, instead not marked. So I needed a map to help reach this little church, particularly I wished to include other stops and spots on my trip tour. ****
  • Very nice place
  • A very small chapel, however, big spiritual presents. We were present during mass, felt the present of God in this place and people.
