Nice little hidden gem on Mount Carmel. And one of the best spots to watch the sun set over the Mediterranean! Plus good food nearby: Kalamaris for all you can eat "salads" pita and dips, and Cafe Santa Maria for great brunch, lunch, and dinner eats (plus coffee done the Italian way!).

You walk about a mile until you get there and when you finally reach it you find out that the church is closed, there's nothing to see from the outside.
