1900 era catholic church with painted walls and ceilings to help early locals understand biblical events without being able to read english. Old but still active cemetery adjacent.

Well worth a visit to this historical, quaint little church beautifully painted walls, alter, and ceiling. Take time to walk the grounds/cemetery surrounding the church.

We stopped briefly en route to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau park. It is a cute little church with some beautiful wall and ceiling murals. It was definitely worth a quick stop.

Worth a quick visit if you are in the area. Historic church with beautiful wall paintings of biblical scenes. No admission fee just asking for donations to upkeep the church. You only need 20 minutes to see everything. Recommended if you are in the area.
