Directions to St. Peter's Church
The church is located on a kind of terrace and from a distance one can appreciate its silhouette. Easy to identify by its tower despite the buildings that are around it. From the port a concrete road allows you to reach the church. The path is adorned by a boardwalk that made me stop, several times, to admire the beauty of nature.
Those waters of the South Sea caressing the sand of this small territory also known as the island of flowers. The church is small, with a single tower with dome like bell tower and on it a cross. The inscription 'Salve Regina' stands out in its entrance on stairs that mix with the everyday, a small park where the residents usually gather to 'hang out', as we usually say when we refer to those moments of leisure that we share with friends and family.
At the time of my visit the church was closed, so I could not take pictures of its interior. Its exterior structure is painted all white and despite the strong sun you can see on the walls the irregular surface that echoes the past. That nostalgic left that leaves the old is in contact with this small structure. Not only did he connect me with the colonial era, also with that close past when we visited the island with friends or when he saw Sister Juan Bustavino return on Sundays, smiling after visiting and officiating on his beloved island of Taboga.
THE PEOPLE OF TABOGA
The town of Taboga developed, like many in the interior of the country, around the church. Founded by Hernando de Luque in the year 1524, which he named San Pedro de Taboga. It served for many years as a port, having its peak in the time of the gold rush in California.
