A gorgeous piece of architecture inside & out. Very popular with visitors & locals it seems. Such a wonderful, calming, peaceful place to visit. Nice little religious shop along the way but only takes cash, no cards accepted!

The place has many volunteers who answer your questions politely. The main attraction is the body parts kept preserved here of St. Francis Xavier. The outside garden and architecture are worth seeing.
