A lovely church standing tall and proud Tirana centre. Beautiful and a lot to look at. Very well looked after. Amazing painting on the ceiling, incredible detailing. Incredible details through out. Really a must see, even if like myself you don’t follow religion.

If you like visiting churches and cathedrals, this one is worth a stop for the architecture. It's not a classic old building but rather a very modern place of worship. Its location, just a short walk south of Skanderbeg Square, makes it easy to find.
