Beautiful place. Jonathan, our tour guide, gave us the history of the church and explained that it is still in use today. Lovely place

This church was on our island tour. It is small and cute. I especially love the windows and doors - so pretty. There are vendors outside selling candles, rosary beads, etc. Light a candle, say a prayer, and take a few pics.

A historical sight with an amazing ocean view. Bring a candle, say a prayer or even a meditation if religion isn't your thing, enjoy the solitude of the space inside or out.

The church is small and there are pews on the outside of the church as well. I love the cactus garden and the little cups hanging from the trees.

Been here twice. Not disappointing. It's a bit of a hike by car and so many of the sights are off on dirt roads (Not this one though). Take one of the island tours.

Not exactly a grand cathedral but quaint and in a beautiful and windy location. If you're on a cruise, grab an air conditioned mini-van, just outside the cruise terminal, and for $20/person they will give you an excellent two hour tour. The church is ok...More
