My Thoughts on Santa Monica Church
When I saw Santa Monica church i was awed by its massiveness. When i went inside i was wowed. Seeing Old Retablos always amazes me. It is such a joy to see how they were able to preserve their Antique Retablos and Antique Santos. After looking at the Interiors of the Church we then went to the Bell. The Bell is massive and impressive.
