Wonderful old church with a friendly atmosphere, beautiful stained glass window but church not to over-decorated. A young man was playing the piano beautifully when we visited, some nice souvenirs to buy

I loved this church! Of the many churches and cathedrals, Basilicas and chapels we visited on our recent trip, this was one of my favorites. I feels ancient because it is old, modestly maintained, not commercial in feel, and not full of tourists brandishing IPhone...More
