3.9/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • 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.
