After a town walk I discovered the church, and though it was officially closed, the doors were still open and I stepped in. No warden in sight, no other visitors. I sat down in the small chapel to rest and pray. I tried to light...More

This church is lovely both inside and out and when we visited on a weekday it was bustling with students, again, both inside and out. A real treat for us was listening to some students practicing on the pipe organ!

Very nice inside the church. Climb up to the top of the bell tower for a small charge. Very healthy climb up steep spiral staircase. Worth the climb for a great view of the old city.
