Saint Franciscus Church is a very beautiful chapel with an amazing view. It's a peaceful spot that overlooks the water & allows anyone a chance to pray and meditate.

The chapel is in remarkable condition. Make sure to walk around and find the burial sites of the two builders. Also walk into the surrounding area which is where the Indians lived.

This place is beautiful and full of history. I appreciated the tour guides giving us this rich history. Be mindful that a lot of people pray and don't go in there all loud like I was. I was disrespectful, but not on purpose.

The church was the highlight of the trip. It sits in the middle of nowhere. Yet as you listen to its history you find out why it is where it is..... You can go inside and say a pray.

Getting to this church is a bit out of the way but it is worth seeing. It is a lovely little spot and very serene.
