“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I was the only one there so I am assuming not at the top of everyones list. It was nice to look at and not a bad view from the top but not really much there.

“Small but lovely church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This is a lovely church. It is small, but that gives it a feeling of intimacy and warmth that some of the larger churches cannot achieve. When visiting we not only saw the church but also the Sacristy which made it even more personal. We certainly appreciated the view from the top having walked up the very steep steps from the street to get to the church entrance. Somehow that effort made it all the more worthwhile. Definitely something to see in Gloria

“Such beautiful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

I love this church. It's beautiful from the outside and even more special inside. From the outside you get great views of the city.
