Alto Vista Chapel, Noord
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

A great place to visit for the view or worship. The chapel has a lovely view of the ocean. The history of the area is great to learn.
If you are really into churches make the trip, otherwise not much to see. Church was rebuilt about 25 years ago, so not even a historic building to be impressed with.
Beautifully kept chapel in a lovely setting. The drive there through a lot of rural Aruba is a must see for first time visitors.
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 nice and peaceful place on the hill.
