Samoa: Churches of Samoa

It feels like on the per capita basis Samoa has the highest concentration of churches in the world – it almost feels there are more churches here then people. Spectacular, colorful open-window churches, often built in coastal locations with even more stunning setting, dot the entire island. Samoan are very religious devout Christians, there are sometimes several churches in each village, of all shapes and sizes and denominations, one bigger and more spectacular than the previous ones. On Sundays, the entire island dresses in sparkling white clothes and everyone goes to church as absolutely all businesses are shut down, even swimming is not allowed.
