  • Located in the basement of the Church of Saint Anthony-there the relics of monk Damian, devoted to the fight against leprosy in Africa and ultimately zarazivšemu himself. The Church arranged a small Exposition on this topic, in the crypt of the relics and a large photo portrait (as monk there already a leper, the spectacle of something else).

  • No grand tomb, just a completely black slab of marble. But the crypt and church are peaceful and have a short history of his life and works in Hawaii. Both are modern. 
  • Although the church was quite modern, the crypt impressive. Father Damien impressed me as a teenager, so it was special to visit his crypt. A great man and a saviour for the lepers.
