I love this church, it is open and beautiful. The Black Christ is memorable and leaves a lasting impression.

A must see in Portobelo...if the church is open. Modest in size but as pained and suffering as any of the images of Christ around the World.

Interesting church. The pillars that support the building look like complete tree trunks. Simple, but has a great feel to it. Nice little town.

Old church with black Christ statue
Feb 2020
The story behind the black Christ was more intersting than the church.
I enjoyed walking in the neighboring fort more than the church.

The church was early to find and very easy to access. There was not much information about it at the site but we read about it online.

I stopped here to see the Black Jesus. The vendors outside reminded me of the bible story of how Jesus had to clear out the synagogue of all the vendors and return it to its sanctified state. Just sayin'

‘‘Tis church represented the pride of poverty. Interesting history and stories. The statutes represented a story for the people who could not read. Very detailed. Worth a quick stop.

I came here briefly when I visited the fort. The place is not that picturesque, but if your in the area might as well add this to the list.

Stopped into the Black Christ Church on our way to Isla Grande. Lite a candle and said a prayer to protect our travels. Well worth the stop.
