I would have never thought to stop at one of these, but glad our group did, because they are really amazing. They are quaint little walled church grounds, with gardens, cemetery, lots of statues, little buildings, a 100+ piece calvary and more. The amount of detail and color is eye popping. Very interesting and unique characters - everywhere you look.... More
