Located in the Kona district of Hawaii, St. Benedict’s Painted Church
is an edifice that boasts a history rich with art and cultural significance. Beautifully painted as a missionary ploy to get people into the church, the exquisite murals have all been restored with the exception of the Hell mural. Don’t forget to check out the well kempt cemetery behind the Church and the impeccable replica of Michelangelo’s Pietà while you’re here.
