I remember going to this church as a child and it was blue and white with plenty of open space around. I think the officials went a little overboard with the renovations and unfortunately the church has ended up loosing its charm.

Tends to be rather crowded in the evenings and on sundays but one can still manage a quiet spot to get a quick dose of tranquility.

A church in the heart of the old city close to Russel Market. Devotees from all walks of life visit the church to ask for favours. Became famous during the 1800's black plague which wiped out the city's old areas. Legend has it that those who went to the church for protection were saved. Very crowded.
