Primera Iglesia Bautista, San Andres

(900+ reviews on the web)
Church
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.

  • Very beautiful building. We get a bit of fear of the neighborhood around. Seen only from the outside because it was closed.

  • The first baptist church was closed due to a funeral, but the views around it were spectacular. Head a little further to the second baptist church which you can access spectacular views also, and you can climb the stairs from the outside even if it's closed or there's a service on.
  • Hello wies
  • How wonderful! We went on a Sunday in day of worship. That beautiful thing, pessamos we were in American churches. Joyful worship and with several songs, the people are friendly and you invite to participate. Thanks for the visit! It is important to remember that we love by historical and cultural side. If you like history and culture will also like.

  • Special site for First Baptist in San Andres. It is striking that all the religious offices are in English. You feel as if you were in the South of the United States. Special atmosphere
