This church is magnificent. We have been to Churches all over the world and St Mary’s ranks up there as one of the most beautiful. We spent two hours visiting and learning so much history. St Marys is a must see.

A block off the main street, you can't miss the church. The inside was beautiful. Would recommend visiting.
