We just went here, it's a saturday and there's a service going (it's 11.00am). On notices on the door it's not clear when the services are held. There's an overview that says other times, another sign says "service at 11:00, no entrance". Just letting you...More

From the minute you enter you are taken back in time. Beautiful stained glass windows and amazing paintings. I would recommend a visit if you get the chance.

Worth a visit if only for the history of the church. Beautiful interior. The fact that it was once totally buried in sand seems unbelievable.
