  • You absolutely must go into this plain looking church as the interior is extraordinary. So much gold - so over the top beautiful. Just when you thought you couldn't see anything more beautiful in all....  more »
  • Such a beautiful place both inside and out. Truly the focal point of the historic district. Please be respectful especially if something is happening inside.  more »
