A gorgeous small church very well located. And a peaceful atmosphere from the top of its hill right in the heart of the marvellous city.

As if it wasn´t enough the location and the very beautiful facade (barroque touch), the interior of this church, one of the most beloved by locals (and the favorite one for prominent´s marriage ceremonies) is so nice...

It is usually closed. Try the Sunday morning mass at 11am that you will experience a very rich ceremony as well.

I was the only one there so I am assuming not at the top of everyones list. It was nice to look at and not a bad view from the top but not really much there.

This is a lovely church. It is small, but that gives it a feeling of intimacy and warmth that some of the larger churches cannot achieve. When visiting we not only saw the church but also the Sacristy which made it even more personal. We certainly appreciated the view from the top having walked up the very steep steps from the street to get to the church entrance. Somehow that effort made it all the more worthwhile. Definitely something to see in Gloria

I love this church. It's beautiful from the outside and even more special inside. From the outside you get great views of the city.
