The Roman Catholic Church was built in 1910 and is dedicated to St. Eustatius. The building to the left of the church, on the edge of the cliff, was the earlier church. It is the ruins of the 18th-century merchant house 'Zeezicht' of Governor De Windt. He sold his property because he was afraid it would fall off the cliff. The Roman Catholics first used the building as a church in 1845.
Wondering what the brick walls between the old and the new church mean? Those are the walls of the former kitchen of the old house. To the right of the current church is the rectory, which was built in 1897.
Location: at the top het Bay Path, Oranjestad
