Was blessed to be here and loved the architecture... Decor and interior of the church was so amazing.

Just happened to chance this church during our walks on the Promenade. There was a service in French going on. Church was beautifully painted inside and outside, well worth a visit especially if you are a Christian. A lot of history in the church.

This was much like any other Basilica you’d find around the world, but with subtle culturally relevant touches. If you’re in the area call in.
