Located in the centre of the town, this cathedral-style church is stunning outside and in. Well worth dropping in to see the religious statues, decor, etc.

This is a lovely church architecturally which seems happily situated in the middle of crossroads. It is also a thriving church with regular masses. Inside is a special place for quiet contemplation, reflection and prayer. There are many admirable physical features inside this church.

This is much like a northern Spanish or French gothic church from the 19c and one of the few I have seen dedicated to this saint. There are several interesting statues and paintings in this church.
