Saint Franciscus Church, Oranjestad

(3.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Saint Franciscus Church 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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Saint Franciscus Church and many more Oranjestad attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Oranjestad trip itinerary maker.

  • Saw the church as part of a longer island tour. Interesting part of island history, but not much to see. If in the area I would stop by.  more »
  • If it is exciting to be front in that small chapel, preacticamente in the middle of nowhere, know its history, appreciate its beauty, seas of religion you are you've got know tine history, still preserves the stones, so took place, and also on the back is the original cross from the chapel.

  • A little pit stop on the way to another attraction and ended up staying longer than we thought. The view around and inside the chapel is amazing.  more »
