St Aloysius Chapel
The St Aloysius Chapel situated in Mangaluru was built in 1885 and is dedicated to St Aloysius Gonzaga. The way the chapel has been built makes you wonder if it is the Sistine Chapel in Rome. The location of the Chapel gives you a picturesque view of the Arabian Sea and is on top of the Light House Hill in Mangaluru. Oil paintings on canvas attached to the ceiling inside the chapel depict the life of St Aloysius. Though the paintings are ancient, they are well maintained and attract tourists from around the world. The paintings are the hard work of Italian Jesuit painter Antonio Moscheni.
