Even being near this place, you automatically want to know more about it. I know I did. The day we went in, it was completely empty so we sat inside for awhile and enjoyed some nice quiet beautiful church time, hah. This place exudes beauty and history. Make sure you visit !

I happened upon St.John's one Saturday evening and since I was close to mass time I decided to go in. Although I am Protestant I felt such a sense of peace here.

I loved the architecture, the floors and ceilings, and the price (free) The grounds had nice trees, and we were welcome to look around at our leisure. Beautiful statues and paintings inside.
