The church is fine, but is worthy to step in just to see stained glass works. Try to find this place when the sun is outside. Stained glass is visible.

Unique interior with bursts of colors. Not your typical church interior. We truly enjoyed the inside of this church with its stained glass windows and colorful walls. Absolutely beautiful!! A must see to compare. The outside brick walls do not show the beauty inside!

You need to visit this to see all the kings buried there. Avoid afternoons, there will be a lot of tourists.

You can enter this beautiful church free of charge, as many tourists do. It’s a brilliant photo opportunity (flash prohibited), and an oasis of calm and quiet from the city centre.

This is a beautiful church. The main stained glass window is exquisite although I thought it didn't quite match the rest of the church. The walls are absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately couldn't visit the whole church as there was an interview going on.

When I visited, there was a service occurring, there was a sign stating "No Flash" photography. It is a stunning church, hope you get some great photos.
