Not easy to find, but worth the effort. A quiet place to relax and view the interior decorations. Good painting of the Saint, and an explanation of its origin.

Its very quaint and as a lovely atmosphere.Its not open all the time so if you want to peak inside you have to wait while the doors are open we were very lucky as they had the flower festival outside where they decorate the floor with thousands of petals beatiful

Visited this church recently and was so impressed by it's beautiful architecture; a lovely and peaceful place to escape from the business of the streets and seafront.

When I stepped into this lovely small church I found not just shade, but a pleasant feeling almost immediately. The church was undergoing some renovations at the time. Located right in the center of old town, you cannot miss it.

Although this church is not too visually attractive when viewed from: the outside,once inside its a totally different story.It reveals a stunning interior worthy of the grandest cathedrals.A beautiful ornate ceiling awaits those who enter and the perrimeter is adorned with wonderful statues.The main alter is beautiful.This place of worship is worthy of a visit if only to sit and...

Worth a visit, not that grand though. If planning a visit follow the street signs, we didn't and went up and down loads of little streets before we found it. Not a wasted visit though.

What a lovely church. The candles burning near the entrance are mesmerizing. The statues are beautiful and the church gives one a sense of calm and peace. It is everything a church should be

Used to be worth a visit but now seems to be just aimed at getting tourists money. Worth going in though if only to look at the ceiling!

The apse area was lovely and the church had a feeling of space though not a particularly big building. We went back another time for a concert being given by the Dore Male Voice Choir from England, we really enjoyed that and the acoustics excellent.
