The walk up 157 steps was so worth the fantastic view you get and the church is beautiful all lit up at night!

This was another location that we visited during our daily walks. We found it to be very popular with other walkers.

This tiny, out of the way church is absolutely beautiful. Its a bit of a walk from the main strip but totally worth it. It sits on tip of a hill that offers great views.
