“Beautiful church - even for the non-religeous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

Beautiful architecture. The church is quite a sight in itself. You can take the stairs / lift up to the upper level for a small fee, although the lift was not working when we were there. Those stairs are tough when you are not used to the altitude! for the more daring you can also walk through the ceiling space on some rickedy old wooden planks and then take another couple of ladders to the very top of the church giving you an amazing view of the city!

My husband and I visited this church towards the end of a bustling day in old city. It was a welcome respite and we soaked up the beauty of this facility.
