Go there only for the view

The church provides a fantastic view of the port area - recommend it only for that. The church internally is just like any other church.

I am an athiest but I like visiting these kind of place for the peace they give. This is situated on a hill and the path to it is very attractive. The church is too good to see.

Atop a big hill, I was more involved with the views of the canal and shipyard and coal production than with the outdoor and indoor church. Sweet, and recommended.
