“Beautiful Little Church!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

In a quiet picturesque setting, this small church is beautiful! The wall murals are faded due to age but still exude the talent of those that painted them. The gardens along the path up to the church are beautiful. Stop and say a prayer in this quaint church!!

“Painted church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I loved this little church the paintings were excellent and the fact that they moved this little church up to were it stands now is amazing and that they fight a constant battle to restore this church against termites is amazing well worth seeing fascinating

“Nice Stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

The Painted Church, St. Benedict Roman Catholic Church, is another nice to visit spot on the Big Island. The colorful, yet faded, murals are well done. The handmade ornaments for purchase on the honor system harken back to times when everyone could be trusted and I really liked that.

Make a contribution to the church and then purchase a few of the items on your way back to the car. It will make you feel great!
