There is a park near the church, which is a very place to relax. The church is really beautiful in its architecture. A nice place to visit.

While this was not a specific destination for us, we ended up spending more time in the church than in our original destination. We walked around the outside and as much of the inside we could. There was a service at the time we were inside. The windows were beautiful, and there was something to see on every surface.

The carvings, statues and stain glass in this church are breathtaking. You cannot walk by this church and not take time to go inside and look at everything.

This church is in a nice section of town too so worth checking out all the shops. In the church I had never before seen chairs that you can sit in and then turn them around to kneel on...learn something new everyday!

We were passing and walked into here. Beautiful, with lots of history. It is very tranquil inside, and the stained glass windows, the statues and carvings are quite something..

Needed information to help understand what I was looking at including elaborately dressed Madonna & Child, & boat above north window. Some good stained glass.

The headline is meant to be tongue-in-cheek as obviously this is not the Notre Dame of Paris fame. It is, however, reasonably ornate and all of its stained glass is intact. If you are like me, and can't resist a church, this should be one for your list.

Take some minutes to visit the old church and admire its beautiful stained glass windows. The peace and quiet there will do you good, even if you are not religious.

It was a nice break to pop into this church on a rainy day. The stained glass windows were impressive and bright, and the atmosphere peaceful.
