  • One of many stunning examples of colonial old world architecture. Beautiful church. Bring your camera.

  • Beautiful church at the time colonial weddings that are held here are very well. The spaces are spacious and ceilings have domes with designs similar to the European cathedrals. Lacks a bit of maintenance.
