Nice tour with rooftop views

The exterior carvings are really beautiful and the painted interior details are worth a quick visit. Nice views from the top.

Worth the look inside, rare that you see a sculpted wood ceiling in a church. The rest of the building is somewhat ordinary though… Hope this review was helpful!!!
