The building outside is an eclectic mix of styles. Inside the church was simple with a beautiful crib but couldn't spend much time inside as a service was about to start. However there were some beautiful tranquil little court yards in the complex.

I guess we were unlucky, but though the outside is interesting we weren't allowed in. Maybe it is only open when the cruise ships are in?
