Religious, Spiritual sights in American Samoa
- Sort by:
The village of Leone is the second-largest settlement on Tutuila and once served as the Polynesian capital of the island. It was also the landing site of the first missionary, John Williams, who arrived on 18 October 1832 after spending two years in Samoa. One result of his work is this imposing church, the first in American Samoa.
Leone actually has two imposing churches - head for the one with three towers and facing the sea. It's well maintained and has lovely stained-glass windows and some beautiful woodwork on the ceiling. There's a monument to Williams' efforts in front of the church.
