The initial construction, built 1972-1973, was designed to symbolize a “tent” inhabited by God. Further, the tent-shaped structure takes reference to the region’s earthquake in 1969: it had destroyed the original church and its victims found refuge in tents. The 42m high clock tower was added during a second construction period, 1990-1991 (unknown architect). Special thanks to Kramar.
