Hovering over the plaza, this building is a centrepiece of the town. You can see it from miles away while hiking above the town. The contrasting clolors of the stone and motor stand out. It is a massive building for a town of this size....More

This is an architectural gem on the inside. Don't miss the stained glass and vaulted ceilings. The statuary is typical. Service was happening in the evening we attended
