It's a very picturesque church and there are statues around the building in the landscaping. It has historical significance and is a very pretty catholic church inside. It dates back to 1899 and has many colorful religious murals inside. Take a look!

This is a cute little stop to add to a road trip south or to the Cook monument hike. I wouldn’t go out of my way, but it’s a scenic drive from Kona coffee country.

We stopped in the painted church while in Hawaii. The church in the ground you're very beautiful but the church building could use some updating. I think now it's basically just a place for Taurus to come and see but it is still very beautiful
