Large, but relatively simply Catholic church built in the 1800s. This church had some similarities in design to Notre Dame in Paris, with the tall columns and straight-forward interior design. Mass was serene and peaceful; a nice change of pace to the busy day. Most...More

The church is situated on a hill and look Gothic from the outside when we visit as most of the trees are bare. The church interior is beautiful.
