  • A welcome refuge from the weather on a very rainy day in Apia. The church is impressive on the outside and even more so on the inside. The wood work and stained glass windows are beautiful, and quite new too. It was very quiet and peaceful when we were there, and definitely worth a visit. The tiles outside were very slippery.
  • Most impressive building in Apia. It is a visit worth even if you are not interested in churches. Just next to the center. Always open during the day for visits!
