We spent about 10 minutes at the church and were able to say a few prayers and light candles. We did not take a tour of the church, and we received limited information, but it is worth seeing.

A reconstructed church in a remote location on Aruba. Quite interesting art inside. Lots of visitors tells you how important a site it is.

A beautiful, calm and very serene little chapel. It really puts things into perspective! When we visited, some lovely local ladies were cleaning and polishing all the metal, so we didn't stay long, but it was absolutely lovely.

Great place to take pictures. Serene, small chapel. If you go early or later in the day you might be the tours that stop here.

It's a cute little church. Not much to see or do there. It's one of those things where one time is more than enough. "See small church--check mark"

Perhaps it has become a bit touristy but stil, it is such a small and peaceful place. Just visit and look around - what a view!

Great sea views and a pretty little church not far from the tourist areas. A great stop if you are heading out to explore the island.
