No ordinary stop on your tour of the region, Catacomb Church was dug out of sandstone in the shape of a cross. A quiet place of meditation and prayer, the church provides a regular Sunday service for about 40 worshippers from nine different denominations. Simply adorned, the interior of the church is natural rock, coated with a special sealant to prevent dust from settling over the lectern and communion table. The temperature inside this unusual church is about 25 C (77 F) all year long, providing a pleasant environment for visitors eager to experience a bit of peace and quiet off the well-beaten tourist track.
