from the outside it doesn't look much but once you go inside it is amazing. The two ladies on duty were very helpful and knowledgeable.

Worth spending times discovering each of the St Laurent live scenes inside the church : the details are wonderful : heads of the angels, faces expression, etc

This is a little gem! Opening times are limited - closed midday and Monday mornings- but it is worth the experience.

We had to wait a bit for the church to open (the opening times suck) but it was definitely worth it! Although rather small, it has an impressive collection of portuguese eighteenth century tiles and a beautiful gilded woodcarving altar. A must!

This is an absolutely lovely church! You should see it. However you have to walk on eggshells. First they charge an entrance fee. No discount for seniors apparently? We were rudely told 'nope, no discount'. You are not allowed to take pictures as they want...More

You need to get their early if you want a seat in the beautiful main body of the church but no reason not to go as sitting in the annex is still fabulous.

This is really a small chapel with beautiful tile blue works all over the walls and the ceiling. The altar was adorned in gold. Sorry, no photograph allowed inside the chapel.

We came to see this village and the church specifically. We enjoyed how quiet and tranquil it was and the amazing views of the surrounding area.

Sorry, I have no idea. Like someone else suggested I would get there early. We arrived in good time for a Sunday Mass in Sept and couldn't get a seat in the main Church. There is a smaller hall to the right of the Church... More
