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

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.

    I was at the Sunday mass, many devotees of the colony and tourists. Very nice Church. The father offered mass at that time surprised me because it is not the typical Mr nag, was something modern and his message came with ease, my very personal appreciation.
