We visited this nice little church where you can hear the organ play during mass. Although it is rather small the inside decorations are beautiful (look at the ceiling). There is also a nice flower market just in front of this church. Don’t miss it.

Located about a block away from the new Cathedral, this small, old church is easy to locate. In front of it are vendors selling beautiful fresh flower arrangements and plants. I said my prayers, took some pictures and continued with my walk around the historic...More

As you enter form behind a screen you are confronted by the breathtaking altar full of flowers when we visited. It is a riot of colour and kitsch but very popular with the locals. Next door are the sanctuary and water selling place? Seems very...More

Small church. Beautifully kept. Outside of this church, humongous flower market. From fresh roses and orchids. Beautiful place to visit. Loved walking thru all commerce selling fresh flowers all different sizes and colors. Beautiful.
