Saint Martin's Church (La Iglesia de San Martin), La Colonia Tovar

(4.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
See an authentic German-style church nestled at the heart of a provincial Venezuelan town at Saint Martin's Church (La Iglesia de San Martin). Built in the 1850s by German immigrants, the church features a typical Bavarian design, epitomized by its wooden exterior painted white with black stripes. In a town dotted with German-style buildings, this church remains the standout. Head to the nearby restaurant to try some authentic German and Polish cuisine. Research the history of the area beforehand as no guides in English or Spanish are provided at the church. Put Saint Martin's Church (La Iglesia de San Martin) into our La Colonia Tovar travel itinerary maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in La Colonia Tovar.

  • Beautiful church, preserved and cozy. Square and other areas are always crowded of people visiting the colony, its spaces are different and you will pass a good time between the landscape, the strawberries with cream, hot chocolate, and the typical cold place!
