Deeply Spiritual Visit

A visit that was very worth the drive. Seeing the signs of the cross on the way there and visiting the chapel makes you realize what is important.

Was unable to attend the English Mass at St. Ann's church in Noord so went to St. Francis. If you take a taxi make sure to arrange for a pick-up in an hour or you will have a long walk to the nearest taxi stand.

Nice trip and Im glad I got a change to visit this spot. It was very nice and surreal and a great spot to have a moment to relax and think about how good life is.

This place of sanctuary in the desert of Aruba is quite calming and pretty. It's amazing that this could be built out in the middle of a desert.

Lovely quaint church. Peaceful. Did not care for the guy selling "stuff" outside the church grounds.

Cute church. Was rebuilt in the 1950's so nothing compared to any chapels in Europe of course. Part of the UTV tour we took. But not worth going to see by itself.

A small beautiful chapel in the desert area of Aruba. Took a tour and enjoyed the chapel and the view. A few street vendors outside selling home made goods which were rather lovely (they aren't here on a Sunday).

I am not one for seeing churches but this one was nice to see. It was first stop on atv tour, could have done without the vendor selling stuff out front but I get it. Beautiful location and the drive up with all the cross's along the side or the road were pretty cool.

A small beautiful chapel in the desert area of Aruba. Took a tour and enjoyed the chapel and the view. Didn't care for the flea market atmosphere outside the grounds selling trinkets and candel to light.
