Although baroque is not our favourite style, this one is rather tastefully designed. Stations of the Cross were in while alabaster and most attractive. There were friendly volunteers willing to guide you round for free.

When you get off the Ferry take the Public Transport bus to the Capital Victoria. Its a very short distance and when you arrive there just ask Its only a short walk from the bus terminal. Enjoy.
