Reviewed November 30, 2012

Just a fantastic example of church architecture, with beautiful altars. Well worth the entrance fee.

“Wow!!!!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Better than the Cathedrals in my opinion, so grand on the outside and really beautiful on the inside. Wander up to the organ loft too, and see the choir stalls.
