I attended a friend's wedding in this church - first time here - feels run down but the feeling of being in an old church is there. Beautiful in its ancient way. Worth the visit!

Absolutely one of the best churches I've ever seen! Entrance is on the "back" side, front always (?) closed. Only 4/5 because Im not a church person, for those who are, visit!

The beauty of the place was marred by the motor cycles allowed to park right in front of the building. So many souvenir hawkers does not look good.
