Very small chapel with high tourist activity. Very peaceful inside the chapel. Tourist trade outside. Plenty of parking and rough trails to walk if you desire. Out of the way location. No fee for entry but donations are appreciated.

We took ATV's to the church and the scenery in the way up there is breathtaking. The church is beautiful and offers candle lighting but there are not a lot of candles and all of them were lit when we arrived.

This is a very nice little historic church with a history to it. The road leading to the church has the 14 Stations of the Cross leading up to it and the location is a must see for Christians.

This chuch was quite beautiful, as was the setting it was in. A must see while on the island. The off road adventure included this stop.

We saw the cathedral as part of an Aruba tour. The cathedral is a beautiful and peaceful place. The architecture is lovely for such a quaint little church.

This was part of an ATV tour, but we stopped and looked inside. I was mostly impressed with the architecture, being an older building but kept in great shape.
