Primera Iglesia Bautista, San Andres

(3.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Perched atop a hill, Primera Iglesia Bautista features sweeping views across nearly the entire island. Originally constructed in 1847 with pine wood imported all the way from Alabama, the Baptist church very much recalls the look of the American South, with its paneled exterior and red roof. Pay a visit to the historical building, which can seat close to 1,000 people, and explore its spartan interior, complete with dark wood furnishings and an upper level of pews. Afterwards, you can climb up the spiral staircase within the steeple to get an even better panorama of the surrounding landscape and ocean.

  • Besides know slightly of history about it first church Baptist in Center and South America, with it helps of a guide can upload to it part more high of the tower and there will see the best view of the island, you recommend go after them 10 am so can appreciate them 7 colors of the sea!. I was a Saturday, only can climb with a guide, you charge $5000 pesos, you shows a video with the history of the church Baptist and then raise to the tower. Recommended me to go to the 10 am Sunday service, native gospel!

  • Good view from the Bell-Tower, but to get there we must climb a steep staircase and enough warmth. The Church has more than 100 years.

  • The first Baptist Church sits in the middle of the island, at the top. Is an old and well preserved building, all pale and quite cute.

  • It is pretty, make it a small guided tour that explains the origin at a cost of $5000 per person and can upload by several steps of wood slightly rustic until what was the Bell Tower and from there see all san andres is a beautiful sight.
