The church is in a beautiful location. It took the villagers almost a hundred years to build it, but it is definitely worth it.

Stayed in hotel very close by. There’s a green light in the bell tower which looks lovely at night, and through the gate is a courtyard type place with a statue of Our Lady, with lights and seats, which is lovely and peaceful.

Wow the building is beautiful especially when it's lit up at night. At the entrance to the square is a tiny little chapel. Worth a visit.

Nice view, and the clockwork was coloured green in the evening. Worth a walk to it and around it. Nice photos over the bay
