Stunning both inside and out. The intricacy of the exterior is remarkable. Inside, the candle smoke has inevitable taken its toll on the paintings, though it does give the place and ancient and atmospheric feel. I would have liked some information about the paintings and...More

The facade is already amazing. There are multiple sculptures of various biblical characters. The church sits beside a touristy flea market, and is usually open.
