This is a beautiful and stunning church and it is all the more impressive when you hear the story of how it was built. This is not a church funded by the Knights but by the local people who pooled their resources and built it...More

Arrive early to miss any queues and make sure you dress modestly (no flip flops or vest tops). Quiet and peaceful space with outstanding architecture and art. WW2 bomb replica in the side room a must see; knowledgeable and friendly staff

3rd biggest dome in Europe? (Vatican, St. Paul’s). Light airy and amazing decoration inside. Separate room for buying bits and the unexploded bomb. Worth a view. 20 min tour with family and key ring purchased. Friendly staff :)

There is public parking quite close by which can get congested. Failing that, on street parking is available. If you or one of your party is a blue badge holder, this makes things a lot easier.
