I had my boy baptized here. Church is beautiful inside and out. Great expansive view from outside. As others have said, be sure to be dressed respectfully.

Amazing white cathedral with a beautiful view from all over the sides. The inside is nice, it is a small place, not too impressing.

Just a beautiful clam place where the local people clearly gift a lot of their love and time. Lovely high alter and painted ceilings. Quite busy as it’s only a small church so seeing everything is quite difficult. Top of the cliff about 150m after...More
