Architectural Design of Church of St. Peter
The church is believed to have been raised with simple structure but now the church wears an antique look. It is small in size and on one of its altars is seen an image of St. Peter, the Prince of the Apostles, to whom the church is dedicated. There were few inscriptions on the floor which are evidently obliterated. The name of Joao Rodríguez Machado is inscribed on the entrance of the church. At the background of the main altar, there is the old wooden frame encrusted with thin marine shells.
