“secret treasure chest”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

the severe exterior gives no hint of the dazzling rich interior with barrel vault lined with stars and flowers. Paintings line the walls leading to a spectacular gilded retable. close to the cathedral.

Small but beautiful church. I visited with my son's new mother in law, also named Clara - both have a beautiful heart.

“Over the top gold decorations”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Church was more than worth the entry fee. Over ninety-five interesting paintings and beautiful goldwork. More explanations in English would have been nice.

“Gorgeous on every surface”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Church is a wonderland of art, with excellent descriptive placards, and the three architectural styles of adornment make for colorful eye candy, never to be guessed from the somber stone exterior. Must see!
