The seminary has a cemetery that is a nice sturdy structure. This is a huge chapel which has been painted white in the interiors.



The church has beautiful and colrful stained glass windows. One of the colorful glass winow has Aeterni Sacerdotii on display.

I just love touring old churches with so much history. The gothic design is wonderful, just lovely. I have come over from Dear Little Red House for the first time. Enjoy your travels. Kathy

The interior of the church looks like the one we have in our churches but the exterior is quite different, it resembles the churches in Europe. Captivating photos!
