The Only Square that spared by war and it's architectural best secured and preserved, this place you'll love day or night. Don't miss this lively and lovely place.

One of the most prominant church in the old town. Entrance to the church was a little bit hard to find as it was behind some buildings and the entrance was in between a restaurant and the stone bell house.

Once inside, the architecture was amazing and exactly what you will expect in churches built in that era.

The exterior view of the church is also very impressive and can be best view from the old town hall tower opposite it.

Plan about half a day in the old town square. Start with the old town hall and visit this church after that.

This church is located in the Old Town Square but the entrance could be a bit difficult to find. It is an awesome piece of architecture with amazing spires. This church supposedly gave Walt Disney the inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty Castle (I can believe that). The interiors are also ornately decorated and entry is free. Photography is prohibited inside the church. Do take time to admire the lovely interiors. You would need to check the timings, though

Architecture at its best! Old Town Square is really beautiful thanks to this church and the Astronomical Clock (of course).

When this church and its gothic spires were light up on a night, it had to be the most magical sight i've ever seen. I instantly understood where Walt Disney must have taken his idea from for his sleeping beauty castle.
