  • This was a great place to find myself on an Easter Sunday while in Puerto Rico! Easter is a very large celebration here and the church was ready for the Fiesta! Wonderful people and architecture. Couldn't have had a more wonderful afternoon.
  • It’s a cool and historical place. Nice structure design.
  • Picturesque church at the core of Arecibo downtown. A landmark for anyone visiting the square.
  • Arecibo is a ghost town with a couple of restaurants that bring some sort of night life but never taste them. If you want to get around the Island and get picture of a ghost town this is the place (even before Hurricane Maria).
  • Catholic church. Mass every day at night. Sumdays at 7am, 9am & 6pm
