When we were there (2 pm on a Wednesday) it was not open. Beautiful but we could only see the outside. Would like to see the inside of this relatively new church.

Beautiful and the center of town. It was interesting to see the difference of the new and the old church. We recommend you to visit them both.

Beautiful and well maintained church that is simply awe inspiring. In a place where there are a number of ecclesiastical gems Holy Cross is the most impressive. The surrounding streets are similarly well maintained and a credit to all who live in this charming village.
