Very interesting and beautiful church. Definitely worth the stop if you are in the area. Loved the cat that was lazily guarding the contribution table!

This is a beautiful and unique church. Definitely worth the stop. Lots of parking plus has a booth for some neat souvenirs to buy on the honor system. We spend about 20 minutes admiring the church.

Not sure what I was expecting. It’s a nice grounds and a pretty church, but not so beautiful that I was in awe of the art.

The church was painted in 3D depictions from the bible, because it was said that most of the ancient people could not read and write. It is well worth a visit.

A lovely church worth the visit if you are passing by. There was a wedding when we visited, making it extra special. The paintings are unique and inspiring. Even the cemetery had a special sweetness.

We stopped in and visited the painted church after visiting the Place of Refuge. It is a beautiful little church. Definitely worth stopping for.

Old Catholic Church harkening to a different era. Faded and nostalgic, serene. Donations accepted for maintenance. Worth the 15 minute visit on the way to Two Step or national park. Nice to take a quiet moment to reflect. A kitty held vigil at the honor...More

Small church with a little garden and the inside of the church had some pretty paintings all over it but they were pretty faded. It was very small and took us maybe 10 minutes. It was worth a stop if you're in the area already.

Wonderful stop. Donation only if you would like to support preservation. No swimsuits allowed, but we are not sure how they monitor that.
