City of Refuge, Historic State Park
(click on pictures to enlarge)
Located on the Kona Coast south of Captain Cook it is about a 25 min. ride from KonaLani Inn.  The city of refuge is where the priests could absolve a person from "kapu" (forbidden).  It was kapu to look at or walk on the same ground as the king and you would be put to death.  A person could flee to the City of Refuge they were cleansed of their crime.  The grounds contain a number of temples in a beautiful coastal landscape.   There is a $5 parking fee.  It takes about 30 mins to enjoy grounds.  The famous painted church (link to pictures of church )  is on the way to (or from) the City of Refuge and would be a quick stop to see.   There is no fee to see the painted church.
