Alto Vista Chapel, Noord

(3.7/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • This chapel is very unique. It's small but well maintained. We enjoyed learning about it and how it was rebuilt and maintained. The local people use it. Beautiful view of the ocean from it also.  more »
