“A MAGNIFICENT PINK CHURCH, HAVING FRENCH EFFECT.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

I visited this church after the” Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus” , so naturally a comparison between both churches ,were going on in my mind .Located on the opposite side of the sea-side promenade,this church looks quite different and magnificent from outside, made in typical French style. The façade (front) has triangular contour above the square shaped entry gate, instead of pointed gothic style entry gate of Sacred Heart church. Painted in satin pink and lemon color, provide it a serene appearance with smooth marble like texture. It’s very pleasing and soothing to the eyes, whereas Sacred Church had bit motley and eye distracting look. The surrounding campus area is also spacious with more greenery around. On the Left side of fencing wall there is statue of lady, facing the church .Rounded dome is seen in the center back, above the sanctum region. I did not enter inside, but just had a peep from the entry gate. Inside it is painted in white stripes with rows of benches on both the sides of center with big statue of Jesus in crucified state below the dome with lighting fenestration. Overall impression about this Church was that it has typical French effect in its architecture with very serene and mind soothing feeling. I liked it.

“church is notable for its masonry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

This church is notable for its masonry (limestone mixed with white of the egg) and is modeled on the Basilica at Lourdes, in southern France.
The tinted stain glass paints/shades are admirable!

Where - Near Promenade beach (<50 meters)
