“Tapestries, wood pictures, colours everywhere”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

One of the rare churches to still have centuries old tapestries hanged on its walls. Super decorated ceiling. Amazing wood tableaux by the altar and a suspended crucifix with an unusual 'cover'. Impressive in many ways

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Apart from being a great place to escape the heat, we were amazed by the lovely décor and statues. Really worth a look.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Stunning ceilings covered in stucco work, golds, reds, greens. Wonderful carved panels in front of the altar and look out for the sumptuously carved confessional- a must see! It'll take your breath away. It did mine!
