Nice church definately catholic. I think its modelled after the cathedral in hamburg or cologne. Undergoing renovation when we visited, one of the sanctums was closed. The catacombs were open but I missed the Reliquary. Interesting to see half the people take their shoes off at the door (which you would do at a temple). I would probably be easier... More

The church has two domes which gives a good looking architecture. You can spend some time outside as well inside the church. Do visit it during evenings around Christmas. The church is decorated at that time looks more beautiful.

We were shopping for silks across this Church and quickly stopped in. It was nice to see but don't think I would have gone out of my way to see it.

Really beautiful church. I enjoyed sitting in the silence there. Very peaceful. There is a school next door and therefore a lot of activity around the area.
