Traditional Catholic Church with beautiful tiled walls and highly decorated nave and altar. Don't walk by, walk in and enjoy the peace for 5-10 minutes.

It's a small church with awe-inspiring interior at the same time make you feel peaceful and calm. It closes at 12 pm for lunch and re-opens at 3pm.

A very plain building outside. Every time I have passed by this church the door has been closed, but on this visit my timing was better. The inside is stunning. Worth visiting if you are passing at the right time.
