Awesome interior, old fashioned wooden benches, enormous stained glass windows providing light, many artistic depictions and figurines lining the walls, beautiful confessional booths. Too much to see at once. I was happy to catch Mass in progress, great service, very friendly priests, had confession immediately...More

Well worth a visit of your interested in religious buildings. The interior is quite impressive and bursting with colour. The stained glass windows were really bright when we entered, photos don't do it justice.

Beautiful architecture, all painted. Was amazed with the serenity of the church. There's Catholic English mass at 5.30pm on Saturday but I couldn't make it.. definitely worth dropping by for a short prayer.

A beautiful church a few step away from the end of the Flower Market. Well worth a visit. Very Roman Catholic with a beautiful altar and hanging Crucifix. The building is alongside the Canal.

This isn't on most tourists list of churches as it's further out of the centre. But I'm glad I went, the interior is grand and the high dome at the end isn't visible from outside so a pleasant surprise when you get to go in...More
