This is a delightful church in the setting of the Parque Rural. I am not a religious type but this old old church is really worth a visit whilst in this spectacular part of the island. Stunningly beautiful.

What was very surprising about this small church was its simplicity. No flashy gilded bits, just a pleasant place to worship. Quiet and effective.

A simple, historic building, placed in the central square of Betancuria, surrounded by sympathetically restored buildings. The church is well lit to show off its best features without being too obvious. It has a spacious, uncluttered feel, with a stunning altar, the ceilings and a rear balcony as its main features. Well worth a look if you are in the... More

This church is small and tucked away in an old historic town in an inland area of fuerteventura. However it is beautiful and well worth a visit. Entry fee of 1.50. A very pretty little church in a very old traditional square in a very traditional canarian village. Hard to believe this was once the capital of the island !... More

Lots of history in this old church and you will have to pay 1.5 euros to see it. The walls, roof, pictures and sculptures are worth taking time over to study

A small admission fee, but free for kids. Well worth a visit if you're in the area. The church has a lot of move and old paintings, clothes and other historic artifacts.

We had a hire car and made the at times, hair raising journey through the volcanoes to Betancuria. On a hot morning, one of the locals was playing a guitar in the small square outside the cathedral - a glimpse of perhaps what it like a couple of centuries ago. There is an entry charge but the building needs repairs... More

Went on day trip to fuertaventura with first minute travel from lanzarote and this stop was included. Quaint village with the cathedral dominating the small square. You are allowed in for €1.50 and whilst it is not on a scale to St. Paul's there are many beautiful artefacts and the main alter is spectacular. Another plus if on a coach... More
