The old chapel of Our Lady of Loreto is a beautiful. We were there just after a wedding which was lovely. Beware of mozzies and the heat.

It is believed that many men are buried in the floor of the Chapel. Visit the museum part of the chapel for viewing fascinating artifacts they uncovered during renovations. It' just beautiful. And they pipe in choral music that adds to the atmosphere!
