If you've ever visited Leguan, chances are you would have passed St. Peter's Church. While the current building was constructed in 1855 and has undergone many renovations since then, there has been a church on the site since 1827. Prior to that, it has been said that religious ceremonies were held under the bamboo trees on the site.

One of the most defining features of the Church is the circular stained glass window on the front of the building. Imported from England, this window and the 7 windows in the apse depicting the life of St. Peter are certainly worth the visit. Unfortunately sections have been broken and bricks and protective mesh have been installed so most of the images are no longer easily visible.

We took it upon ourselves to look deeper at the circular window and try to interpret the meanings behind the images and fill in the gaps as besy as we could. We've complied these into a handy image below (and a downloadable version here). Take a look and if you have anything to add, let us know! We'd be more than happy to learn more about this work of art hidden in plain sight.
