I really enjoyed a quick look inside this church while on The Island. It is quite lovely and simple. The traditional bell ringing is quite nice and a fun thing to do. The church really makes the island look special from afar.

Once you get to the island, you must go inside the church and ring the bell three times for good luck.

An entrance fee for this church but I guess you can't go to the island without going in. I didn't mange to ring the bell not matter how hard I tried. I'm guessing they tied up the ringer! The fee included the Bell tower which...More
