I visit this church during the lent. It was a very cold day and this church gave me sanctury. The warm and peaceful atmosphere inside make me forget for a moment the busy and hectic life outside. This church is also beautifully decorated. Worth a visit for the soul and for the eyes.

I was really surprised after entering this church, as I did not expect the inside to be so beautiful. It is very well maintained and has many original features. Definitely worth a visit.
