“Surprising, picturesque church.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a surprising building as the external cladding is corrugated iron sheeting but assembled and painted in such a way as to result in a very pretty building, one that is instantly recognisable, easily seen from the surroundings and a symbol of the town.

It is a little bit of a walk out of the town center on a rise by a public park. The park has a rock grotto with an icon in it, well visited and with votive lights round the base. Adjacent to the church is a stainless steel monument depicting the coat of arms of the town.

The inside of the church is equally unexpected, light, airy, nicely decorated with an interesting alter and some "folk art" style paintings. The curved, blue painted, ribbed ceiling of the nave is very striking and the first thing you see as you enter. All-together a bit of a gem in an area which relies mainly on domestic buildings for its 'architecture'.
