  • We were welcomed by Maria, a seminarist from Ireland. The community is very united, we spoke a lot about the catholic religion in the archipelago, very interesting shared moment.  more »
  • The desing and the glass paintings were beautiful, a place to sit down and let your thoughs fly away. The acoustics were great and it was tested by us singing a hymn before we left.  more »
