From outside it does actually look like a long used, worn out building that urgently needs renovation. On the inside the rays of sunlight coming through the colorful windows give you a complete different experience. Magical and nice...but cold and strong. Depending on where you...More

This church, built hundreds of years ago, may have been built atop an older structure [as with many other churches] dating back thousands of years - to the time of the Roman Empire. These days, it not only serves as a place of worship, but...More

We paid one euro each for entrance. The architecture was gorgeous and there are storks on the rooftop you can see from outside the church. It was great to escape the heat for a little while and enjoy the art.

The church was closed during my visit, but the outside is very interesting with beautifully carved stone facades. It was good to see storks still resident at this time of year. A really nice building.
