Saint Edward's Church

Interesting
Distinguished by elaborate decoration inside and out, this Roman Catholic church features a baroque entrance of cast stone, a belfry and a red-tile roof. In the narthex, spiral marble pillars and carved wooden gates lead into a vast sanctuary vaulted with a 65ft hand-painted coffered ceiling. The main altar was carved from a single piece of Carrara marble and measures 28ft by 15ft. Eight clerestory windows on either side of the nave represent scenes from the life of the Virgin Mary. Cloister windows on the north depict eight parables, those on the south eight miracles.
