Very small chapel constructed mostly of old cartwheels. They have Catholic services every Sunday. Interesting to visit of you have a guide who can explain the history of the chapel.

This attraction is hidden away. You need a guide to get you there and show you around. The cathederal is interesting and the homestead and surrounding grounds are very picturesque. There are no amenities or cafes here so bring water with you.
