The church is seldom open but its history is really interesting as it is a private church.It is beautiful with incredible architectural details and I saw many people taking pictures of it.

This is a church that you won't be able to take your eyes off. It is beautiful with many, many architectural details. Even though the inside isn't open most days, it is well worth the time to stop and admire the exterior.

Constructed in 1929 (at the time of the US stock market crash and beginning of the Great Depression) by the Yurrita family as a private church, this captivating structure has an ornate maroon tower and stonemasonry. The architecture is a mélange of styles from neo-Gothic...More
