“beautiful small church”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

The Church in the small town of Pajara is well worth a visit. It has a beautiful altar. Next to the entrance you find a machine, which will light up the altar for some minutes. The entrance is interesting with its wooden carvings.

“A haven of peace in the shadow of laurel trees.”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

After the mountain roads from Antigua to Betancuria and the Mirador Morro Velosa we continue on the FV-30 to Pajara, a welcome stop after a lot of driving . The time seems to stay, very few cars, some lazy dogs, village terraces with a few local inhabitants. And in the middle of this quiet village, looking looking like a North African village, a strange church (built end of 17th century) vowed to Nuestra Senora de la Regla, the patroness of Havana in Cuba.

Coming closer to the church, passing an old well, some Aztek symbols are curved in the stone of the facade, like fethers, snakes and Aztek faces: maybe I missed some others, but it's a strange feeling to see it. Enjoying the view on the church is possible sitting on "special" benches, in which the work of peasants has been curved in the wood.

Really a nice place in the shadow to make a rest from driving in the mountains. Some small bars with restaurant would be helpful for hungry people.

As a conclusion, Pajara and it's church is an athentic village, not yet corrupted by tourism, but how long.
