This is a restored church near the entrance into the city. Admission is free and doesn't take more than 10 mins to see.

Only saw the church from outdoors. It is stunningly beautiful. Did not get a chance to see the interior and it may have been closed in any event.

Only able to get a small view as the church was completely closed for renovation/restoring. Saw this back in the 1970's and had wanted to see it one more time. May need to come back in a couple years.
