The Shipwreck church is well worth seeing. They also sell a book about the church at a low price so you can get into it's history. Well worth a second trip to see.

This church is on the same street as our holiday apartment. It was free to visit (donations welcomed) and was a stark contrast to the crowds at the cathedral. Interesting building and paintings

No real signage to speak of and you can miss it when walking by if you don't look up. Then you will be taken by impressive spires and bell towers. It's just tucked away. Entrance to the church is from the St Lucia's Street. It's...More

You have to go to the side door and Santa Lucia Street. It is undergoing some renovation which is a bit of a problem but it's still worth the visit. Actually the renovation should be complete by now so I'm enjoy.
