Not a religious person but this was very pretty. There are also some cafés close by for lunch that are not expensive.

If you only do one thing, do this. There is a beautiful terrace to have a coffee or dessert with an amazing view of the area. The church is also worth seeing. Also the water powered funicular is unique, fun & inexpensive.

Really enjoyed an hour in this place, taking photos of the pleasant architecture in the sunshine. A winding climb in the car but worth it. Good views over the city below.
