One of the most beautiful church statues I have ever seen. A place of reverence and beauty if you have a moment to sit and be thankful or if you just want to see something inspirational.

A fine austere neo classical building on the outside is a wonder in white inside with a beautiful altar area and many fine statues down the sides. Overall impact is great.

Not that pretty on the outside but grand on the inside. Lots of gold and statues to look over. The royals have their important ceremonies here.
