A beautiful church. Easily accessible. Was very crowded because of a wedding so couldn't see the insides. But is a visit worthy place.

It was unusual to see so many christian churches in Negombo. This one is one of the most beautiful. But it is located at the main road and it is difficult to breathe there

Absolutly beautiful Church. Very well maintained. Gorgeous paintings around the Church and on its ceiling. Highly recommend to visit
