It's a nice church stands out in the public. A very white, decent church, not like those in milan nor paris one, simple design and neat, gives u a peaceful mind.

Really wanted to see this church on the inside, but unfortunately it was closed due to maintenance. Outside is beautiful and we díd get to see the crypt.

This place is worth to walk by and have a look at it outside. We have been there around 6 pm when they played some bell sounds. Was really nice. To explain...I am not really fond of churches, but this one I like because it is so plain! There is like only one Jesus painting. This would be an amazing... More
