Gorgeous little baroque church, just off the town square - watch out for traffic when coming out. Also called the Church of the Miséricorde, it is a stunningly beautiful interior, for such a small building.

Interesting architecture this church has very heavy Baroque architecture. Also know as the Church of the Miséricorde the restaurant nettoie does not have a central aisle. Pretty ceilings.

This is a beautiful church with so much history and breathtaking architecture. If you have a chance to attend a mass, please do. The locals on this island are SUPER catholic and Church is a HUGE part of their life!

We were in town on a tour from the Carnival Vista. Our tour did not go here but we had a bit of time while walking around the town and my wife and I stopped in briefly. This is an unknown gem.

Thank RandyRoss
