1900 era catholic church with painted walls and ceilings to help early locals understand biblical events without being able to read english. Old but still active cemetery adjacent.

Calming and Beautiful! We stopped by the church on the way from Kona to the Green Sand Beach. The paintings are beautiful!

Well worth a visit to this historical, quaint little church beautifully painted walls, alter, and ceiling. Take time to walk the grounds/cemetery surrounding the church.

We stopped here as part of a private tour. The church and paintings are interesting to look at, but I wouldn't make a trip here if it was out of the way. It is a nice short stop if close by.

We stopped briefly en route to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau park. It is a cute little church with some beautiful wall and ceiling murals. It was definitely worth a quick stop.

Worth a quick visit if you are in the area. Historic church with beautiful wall paintings of biblical scenes. No admission fee just asking for donations to upkeep the church. You only need 20 minutes to see everything. Recommended if you are in the area.

Its a nice drive to the painted Church. You can sometimes get mangoes and other fruit from the side of the streets on the road to it. We did not see many people around and they had a honor system fruit stand up front.
