After leaving Casino, I took a walked up to a very pretty area. Very touristy. I noticed this immaculate and imposing Church. Very unique architecture. It dominates the area.

Took several photos from the outside, but it was locked up tight on a Friday morning despite cars in the parking lot. Would have liked to have seen the inside.

The church was gorgeous from the outside. Sadly, the gate was locked and we couldn't get in. Would have really enjoyed to have seen inside the building.
