This is a truly beautiful place. The ladies have to cover their shoulders when entering but shawls are available to loan at the impressive entrance. Beautiful art on the ceilings and walls and a real sense of history.

When you get off the Ferry take the Public Transport bus to the Capital Victoria. Its a very short distance and when you arrive there just ask Its only a short walk from the bus terminal. Enjoy.
