The whole colonial church, part of the history of this beautiful city and its square in front, holds a harmonious tranquility, great for spending time and rest.

Loved this little church. Step inside and go back in time. Quiet, old and simply restored. I walked by it several times before I actually realized it was a little church. Lots of character.
