It's a beautiful old building. A touch to history. And u can buy nice crosses there. The only thing that slightly disappoints is that the top cross is on the Ground now. (It fell down several years ago)

Lovely architecture, easy to find, takes only 15 minutes or so to have a good look around. Something different and unexpected in a seaside town.

We passed this interesting building very often in the mornings and early evening, admired it - but could never go in because the doors were firmly locked. What a shame.

Unfortunately, each time we passed this church. it was either too early or too late because we always found it closed. We would have liked to admire its inside because its outside is truly beautiful.
