Temple of the Americas

Built on the ruins of the original 16th century church built by Christopher Columbus in La Isabela – considered the first Catholic church in the New World – the brick and stone colonial building, Templo de Las Américas, stands in a beautiful landscaped garden. It contains many images of the Virgin Mary. Stroll inside and feel the constant breeze from the nearby Atlantic passing through this spiritual site.
