Beautiful little church very close to beach and several restaurants. We had a family wedding there. The staff were most helpful. The location was excellent. Beware of "red tape" if you are from UK

We recently got married here on September 30th! The church was beautiful and the father who married us was the best priest in the world! Our family loved the church also! Cannot wait to visit again in the future with our children hopefully.

From an architectural standpoint, the only remarkable part of this church is its tiled dome, which is best viewed and photographed from the beach. The interior is fairly bland, but the main alter-piece is worth study.

We stumbled upon the crypt by mistake and that was the most worthwhile part if the visit as the guide was very informative and passionate. They are going to put some more of it on display in a few years time. We couldn't see much...More
