  • First of all, there is a fee to ↓ is free. It is a place of the citizens' relaxation. If you participate in mass, the donation box will come around, but a dollar will be fine. You don't have to put it in. Because the air conditioner works in a splendid building, I think whether it is good to go to coolness.

  • From my understanding, this should be the biggest cathedral in Guam. It looks new and sleeky design. You can find traditional colorful glass windows inside. For tourist, you must donate a dollar per person at the entrance (put into donation box). Just wondering on office hours of gift shop; it should open during my visit but it's closed and locked.
  • Good place to take picture. There are some landmarks that are symbols for Guam island.
