I can't tell you how surprised I was when I saw the name The Church of the Annunciation for this church. I always thought there was just one Church of the Annunciation and it was in Nazareth, Israel. And how pleased I was when I...More

Very disappointed that the church was closed on each of the occasions we were at the entrance to the harbour. The building itself however is nice to look at and walk around.
