The toffee-coloured sandstone and Marseilles-style roof make this one of the Klein Karoo's most striking country churches, and well worth a visit. Built in 1912, and declared a national monument, the church is famous for its renowned wall hangings recounting the story of Jesus. There are free organ recitals Mon / Tue / Thur / Friday at 6pm.

Admission: Free.
