If you're in the area - it was very nice to see.

We happened to be down that end of the island, and I wanted to look for it last year. We finally found it (there was a sign directing to it) and it was very nice to see. There... read more

This is a Catholic Shrine. Even if you are not Catholic it is worth stopping by to see how it is built into the rock. There are 2 shrines on either side of a road. You have to park along side the road as there is no actual parking spots. On one side is a shrine that has an alter... More

Believer or not, this religious place is a must. Our Lady of Sero Preto is right on top of the grotto inspiring peace, fulfilling hopes and pouring faith to all who come to visit her. Explore the surroundings and enjoy more than a pair of goats, iguanas nibbling on local plants and even a donkey family walking through. Enjoy San... More

Not far from San Nicolas on the edge of the national park is Lourdes Grotto. There are things on both sides of the road. It is quite difficult to find when you are driving on roads you don't know but a kind lady stopped and asked if we were lost and we followed her car to get there. It is... More

An amazing and unusual place, the simple and beautiful display that people do with this natural beauty is hard to explain, is a must see.

A very nice spiritual place in San Nicolas. Nobody there but us when we visited, except for goats. A good place to meditate and contemplate.

Our cruise ship shore excursion was called the “Hidden Gems of Aruba” and the Lourdes Grotto was our first stop. Parking is somewhat limited here but our bus driver did find a spot long enough for the bus. Our visit was 10 minutes long. We were told that Catholics would come here to pray and would return to town with... More

If you are nearby San Nicolas and are interested in religious places, a short visit to the Lourdes Grotto is worth it. It is unusual as this religious place of worship is on both sides of a street where cars do not necessarily drive by slowly. There is hardly any parking. It was easy to find thanks to a navigation...

an easy to find religious venue. there are two grottos, one on each side of the road. watch for traffic as you cross the road. a good place to say a few peaceful words of worship. when we stopped it was late in the day. quite possible it could get busy on the more religious observances.
