Alto Vista Chapel, Oranjestad

3.9
#4 of 13 in Historic Sites in Aruba
Alto Vista Chapel claims the title of the largest Roman Catholic church in Aruba, but it's not what most visitors expect given the name. Although the church is designated as the largest on the island, it has only a single room. Take time to admire the arches that make up this room, and take advantage of the quiet and appreciate the history of the site, which dates back to the Spanish conquest. Put Alto Vista Chapel into our Oranjestad day trip app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Oranjestad.
