Primera Iglesia Bautista Hispana, San Andres Island

#12 of 64 in Things to do in San Andres Island
Church · Tourist Spot
Perched atop a hill, Primera Iglesia Bautista Hispana features sweeping views across nearly the entire island. Originally constructed in 1847 with pine wood imported all the way from Alabama, the Baptist church very much recalls the look of the American South, with its paneled exterior and red roof. Pay a visit to the historical building, which can seat close to 1,000 people, and explore its spartan interior, complete with dark wood furnishings and an upper level of pews. Afterwards, you can climb up the spiral staircase within the steeple to get an even better panorama of the surrounding landscape and ocean.
