Monday continues

Driving down the northeastern shore of Aruba with ABC Jeep Tours, the next stop was at the Chapel of Our Lady Alto Vista. This was the site of the first chapel on Aruba, which was built in 1750 and used until 1816. The current church was completed in 1952. Several people were reciting prayers in the chapel and we went no closer than the doorway.

The priest serving the surrounding Parish of Saint Anne conducts a mass at the chapel on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 PM.

As we drove away from the chapel. we briefly drove along a road which had crosses with the Stations of the Cross.
