The church is a neoclassical style church with a square clock tower on the left and a shorter square tower on the right. Six, white, two story columns at the front entrance. The convent, to the right of the church, is a two story building with smaller white columns at the entrance and scalloped roof line with a cross perched on top. Another two story house with a second floor balcony is to the left of the church. A portion of the sea wall is visible in the foreground. The title of the card is printed in the upper right of the image.
