This was one of the first Churches visited in Lucerne and worth the visit. Our approach to the church afforded an up hill look at the entrance and the two tall steeples. The interior is pretty close to what one expects for churches in Europe...More

A wonderful peaceful Catholic church, given the history, its worth the visit. Walking in and spend some time sitting in this church. After walking out, you really feel the peace in heart.

This church is amazing, with beautiful gardens and two tall towers. It has a fountain, too. The view is amazing, and the church, itself, deserves the photos and applauses for its beauty

We happened upon the church as we were walking to the Lion Monument. Very picturesque, and we decided to go inside. Imagine our surprise as the church was full of worshippers and a dozen priests were queueing up to say Mass! Turns out it was...More

This is a social area. Many people congregate on the grounds to share lunch or snacks with friends and talk. That is always great to see around a house of worship. They were testing the organ when I visited, and it sounded grand. However, I...More
