This was just an amazing experience. We visited between weddings and got to enter the church for about 30 minutes. It is beautiful, serene and cathartic. The views were sensational and so are the grounds. I highly recommend this place to visit.

Beautiful church built on a hill overlooking the ocean. You don’t need much time here as the facility is not that large but it is definitely worth checking out.
