What can I say other than what a stunning view from the tower. The church itself was unimpressive for me. Most of which had been rebuilt but definitely worth the visit

The view itself is lovely...however it’s very pricey at €9 per person! Obviously the church has no control over the weather but as you can imagine it’s very cold up on the viewing platform and it seems very little maintenance has been performed on the...More
