Great for fans of old churches or those who just like a good view. Really cheap to go up the tower and around the church although we spent most time up the tower. Stunning views. Definitely worth the climb

It is an amazing church with great views of the city from the tower. The interior is a work of great craftsmanship. In the back there are funeral stones dating from 15th beginning of 16th century

Great view over the city from the church's steeple. But do take into consideration that reaching the steeple requires a lot of stairs up (...and they may seem pretty insecure).

While the church is not really outstanding seen on an European level, we enjoyed the exhibition about Albert Schweitzer in the side hall.

The inside is as beautiful as the outside. The altar at the end. The crests and the gigantic organ is amazing. Unofficially the largest organ in Europe as it doesn't work. It has over 6000 pipes. Amazing. Must see.

We were not allowed to climb the tower with our children (aged 2 and 4) which was a real disappointment to them after they had climbed the 134 steps in the Council Tower. I'm sure it's a good attraction for people without young children.

It's located in Huet Square and its architecture is impressive. You can visit it for a small fee and admire the interior, the unique organ and see some burial places of famous locals. Worth spending some time there.

A guide will tell you stories of the bath in side the church and four balconies at the top of the tower. Very interesting and a very peaceful church.
