“Crowded but worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Went as part of a tour just after it had opened for the day so crowds were at their peak.
The church itself is an incredible feat of architecture but the ceiling is something to be admired.
if you are going there to find any peace or solitude, forget it as the noise and heat can become a little overwhelming with people and buggies trying to take photos and find the best place to test the acoustics.
There are toilets within the church but they charge €1.50 per person!
Watch out for pickpockets in the church and its environs.

“Unusual”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

It is an unusual example of a church, using bed rock and a tremendous copper roofing structure. It looks a bit seventies, but quite impressive none the less.

“Stunning!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

If you're in the city, you need to see this Church! The structure is breathtaking and it truly is awesome. We were unlucky - there was a funeral taking place inside the church and we were unable to see iniside. BUT, that outside of the church is still worthy of paying a visit. It's very unusual, almost odd but very neat.
