The colors of the outside of the chapel are magnificent if you go on a clear day and the sky is an amazing blue. It is very cute from the inside, but there is nothing specacular here.

The Chapel is really cute and has little crosses on the drive up to it. It's not close to the main area but if you have hired car for the day, it seems a shame to not visit here.

We enjoyed a wonderful early-morning stop at Alto Vista Chapel for a peaceful walk around the grounds and the chapel. When you visit, take some extra time to walk the labyrinth for a peaceful meditation in calm surroundings.

Great view around this chapel. Sits secluded, not far from other things however. Great picture opportunities and great place to take a break on a tour or drive around the island.

The Chapel is small and in good condition. Nothing special about the Chapel. You don't need to spend much time visiting.

Stopped there on ATV tour and also bus tour. I could feel God's presence and see His beautiful hand of natural work all around. Wonderful place to thank our Heavenly Father for all his goodness and love.

Sweet church, meticulously kept up. You can light a candle, but a rosary, pray, all while taking in the sweeping views.
