This interesting church with a tall tower is located in a relatively quiet part of town, but still easily accessible on foot from the main tourist areas. The tower is really quite high and can be seen for some distance around. Worth a look.

I hadn't planned to visit this church; I was just wandering around and I found it. It is a very beautiful church, peaceful and quiet with a lovely cloister next to it. I really enjoyed it, goes without saying that it was free of charge!
