1. The Changing Church Marker
The fifth church facade has changed since 1825.
The Spanish Built the first church in 1825 with no decoration. Ten years later, figures of saints were painted on the church faced. Over the next 90 years the face was remolded twice. After a fire in 1926, the 1835 facade was recreated in relief including the statues you see before you. From left to right are statues of St. John the Baptists, St. Clare and St. Francis.

Can you see how else the church has changed over the years?
