We visited the Painted Church by the suggestion of our innkeepers. The Painted Church website says that the church was first erected in 1899. It was located on the shore of Honaunau Bay, however was later moved to the current location. The inside of the church was hand painted, with regular household paint and without any professional training. It is said that he painted the church to teach the native Hawaiians about the religion. The interior depicts reproduction of the dramatic, vaulted ceilings, and cathedral-like walls. It is a small church, with a parish and almost daily masses. It has been kept up very well, and it is beautiful inside. The admission is free, and it's worth the visit.
