We visited the chapel on our way from the bus station to the castle. It is within the old town and you won't miss it. Visiting the chapel won't waste your time and is really peaceful and calm place.

We probably walked past the Chapel 50 times while passing through the Old Town's shops + restaurants. It's nice to pop your head in and take a quick gander at. Adds to the town's charm.

This is a very small, well cared for chapel. Lovely little quiet place right in the midst of hustle and bustle,.... magic.

It was the last thing we expected to see in the shopping area, it is well worth taking a few minutes to go inside and feel the tranquillity of the church.
