Fodor's Review

Pampatar is home to the blindingly whitewashed Iglesia Santísimo Cristo del Buen Viaje, dating from 1748. The church features a bell tower with an outside staircase—an architectural oddity found on several houses of worship on Isla Margarita. Inside stands the "Christ of the Good Voyage" figure, to whose intercession many attribute safe sea travels.
