It's a quaint little church. Quiet place to relax, pray if you have to, take a look at your phone's camera to see why it is not working.

I first visited in January 2001, I dreamed of marrying here. In September 2001, my dream came true. This place is beautiful and has a wonderful atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

It's a beautiful church dated from 17th century, situated in the old town. It's definitely worth a visit if you're lucky enough to find it open. The views of the coast from the square are stunning. It's worth climbing all those steps for. In the...More
