Italian Chapel

  • Address: Old Naivasha Road, Lake Naivasha
Add to Trip Planner

This Catholic chapel was built in 1942 by Italian prisoners of War. It's is a cute little place and makes a good place to stop by and visit as you travel through the Rift Valley on the way to Naivasha.

There's not much to see but the location is nice - just mind all the traffic as this stretch of road tends to be quite busy. There's a place to park just outside the chapel.

Opened daily from 10am until 5pm, there are usually fresh flowers at the alter.

The Italian prisoners built the road in this treacherous environment and as a sign of compassion for their hard labour, they were allowed to build a small catholic church. The inner walls are covered with Latin inscriptions which read:

"Venite Ad Memone , Haec Est Victoria Quae Vincit Mundum Fides Mustra, Benedicite Coeli Domino Benedicite, Universa Germinatia In Terra Domino"

This loosly translates to:

"Come to Me, this is the victory which has overcome the world.  Faith, Bless the Lord, Bless the Heavens, All living things In the land of the Lord".

There is a picture behind the altar of baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph and  surrounded by the angels. It was drawn in early 1943 by Navitatis NDJC.
