Little could be more picturesque or more Caribbean chic than the Alto Vista Chapel on Aruba. With the big Caribbean sky and peaceful sea as your backdrop, the Alto Vista Chapel, or “Pilgrims Church,” is one of the most photographed attractions on the island.
Built by Spanish missionaries in 1750, the Alto Vista Chapel still conducts services and is said to be the oldest continuously operating church in the Caribbean. Sitting alone on a hill on an island in the Caribbean, the scene is instantly inspiring, and the grounds and gardens immaculately manicured. Easily one of the nicest stops while out exploring Aruba, the Alto Vista Chapel is not to be missed.
The Alto Vista Chapel is located in Boca Noord, Aruba, on the eastern side of the northwestern tip of the island, off of Alto Vista Road.
