The church has beautiful stone walls. The altar is simple and elegant. There is a "secret" view deck which allows you to see the islands of Culion. Two Spanish canons are positioned on this view deck.

This Church is approached by numerous stone steps. It was built in 1933 despite apprearing much older. This replaced a far older original church.
