  • This church is absolutely gorgeous! Full of artifacts and relics. I could easily spend hours inside and not see all the amazing art/details. Don't forget to look up and see the murals on the ceiling! It's like stepping into the past!
  • From the outside, this church may seem slightly boring, but once you go inside you will see the magnificent art it has to offer. Along the sides of the church are these naves which display statues, painting, and gold pieces and a massive painting is shown on the ceiling. I recommend you see this as it is truly beautiful.
