Beautiful Chapel

A small but beautiful historic site (still in use) that has been restored. I enjoy history in whatever form it takes.

This is a charming chapel with a serene feeling that is well worth a stop. I was able to buy a candle from a vendor outside for two dollars.

My husband and I have been here three times. It's a nice little stop if you can catch it when there's no buses there. I find it peaceful.

Just a small chapel to stop and say a prayer of thanksgiving that you were able to come to Aruba. As you walk about the grounds the view is so amazingl! You'll get to see the raging Atlantic Ocean from above and beautiful vistas. .We try to get there each time we visit.

This small chapel had fresh vases flowers, candles burning and to the right and left a few pews for worshipers. It sat high up on a hill and a few steps away you could see the waves coming into the rocks below.

This is the oldest church in Aruba dating back to the 1700's I believe. Kinda out of the way, on part of a half day tour. The church is beautiful and the view is amazing. Souvenir sellers out front also selling cool drinks which you will need. Very hot but spectacular!
