Featured advertiser

The Campaneyan Kriso Rai, also known as the Catholic Belltower, is a historic church tower in Garapan, the largest village on Saipan island in the Northern Mariana Islands. Built in 1932, it is the only element of the island’s most prominent Roman Catholic church to survive bombardment in World War II. The tower, a concrete structure 3 metres (9.8 ft) square and 10 metres (33 ft) tall, was built by Spanish Jesuits brought in by the Japanese South Pacific Mandate administration, and stood next to an 1860 wood-frame church.
