“Beautiful but Dark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

A very beautiful church with some great religious art but it is very dark inside if the lights are not on. The side chapel has a great statute of the flagellated Christ and a replica of the Shroud of Turin.
Great gift shop behind the church.

“JP II's place of worship”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Apparently Pope John Paul used to pray here; there's a silver plaque at the back to show where he used to sit. Free, but there are masses rather often. It's pretty central, worth a ten-minute visit

“The stained glass and painted wallls are both fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

This is some of the best stained glass that I've ever seen

And the painted walls with floral patterns make this church entirely unique and certainly one of the most interesting churches to visit in Europe.
