Really interesting church with a great art nouveau exhibition that wAs well thought out and presented. The trip to the tower also provided some spectacular views but the area was very small and cramped. Could the lower viewing area be used as well?

It is rather more beautiful from the outside than in the inside. What I really enjoyed in this church was the musicians in the square just in front of it. I think that I spend over an hour hearing just divine music!! I hope you would be that lucky too.

Very elegant and prominent old church. Visible from a distance and is one of the many landmarks. I had a hard time getting a great photo in the dark and rainy weather,

Well worth the cost of the elevator ride to see the city in all directions. A building that originally dates back to the 1200s and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Was told that at one point it was the highest tower in Europe. Good place for taking photos.

Acoustics were great and we listened to an hour long Bach organ Recital- Seats varied from 7 to 15 Euros- We chose the 10 Euro seats but all price ranges had good acoustics
