Alto Vista Chapel is a small Catholic chapel also known as "Pilgrims Church" that stands on the hills above the north shore of the sea and to the northeast of the town of Noord, on the island of Aruba, 27 km north of the coast of Venezuela. The church, painted on the outside in stark bright yellow, makes it a conspicuous religious monument for people to visit. The present Chapel of Alto Vista was completed in 1952 and stands in the same location as the original chapel, which was built by Domingo Silvestre, the Venezuelan missionary from Santa Ana de Coro, Venezuela, in 1750.
The Alto Vista Chapel was stated to be the location where conversion of Aruban Indians to Christianity started.

Enjoyed this. It took a little while to find but once we found it, it was well worth the time. I went to Aruba with a native so he gave me alot of background information on this little chapel. Very beautiful! A must see if you visit Aruba.

We were on a couple of different tours that stopped here, the first was a jeep tour and by the time we got here it was surrounded by other tourists. The second time we visited, we were on an ATV tour and we were the first to visit so there were only about 16 of us and my Wife and I had the chance to step in and light a candle and say a quick prayer of thanks. There is a wooden donation box up near the Altar and we dropped a little money in prior to walking out and being greeted by other tours who were arriving. On the road up, they have the stations of the Cross setup, we went right after Easter.

Beautiful natural church . Mountain biked from the Marriot. Lots of hills and wind all the way up but worth the effort! Cool bike trails small enough so off road cannot access ! Do it by bike, challenge yourself!

A neat place to stop. Chapel is in the middle of a decelote area. It's a quick easy stop if you are offloading around the northeast side of the island.
