It's a very picturesque church and there are statues around the building in the landscaping. It has historical significance and is a very pretty catholic church inside. It dates back to 1899 and has many colorful religious murals inside. Take a look!

This church was part of a cruise ship excursion and was very interesting. They explained the history of the church and the beautifully painted murals on the walls and ceiling.
