At the center of town, Saint Martin's Church is a reminder of La Colonia Tovar's German history. The church's L-shape and stunning stained-glass windows make it well worth a trip.

This church (Catholic) is beautiful and as all of Colonia Tovar , it has a Bavarian style. Colonia Tovar was founded in 1844 by German immigrants that came from the Baden region. More than 150 years after, it maintains its Bavarian flavor.
