Was a bit difficult to locate & once we got there , felt it was worth the walk . A simple but attractive structure . Visit if you have the time else skip as you wouldn't have missed much !

You need to see it from outside. There is a fencing around. There is nothing much to see there. The sea and the road are more interesting.
