  • Simple yet beautiful church in the city centre. You can rest here for a short reflection or meditation specially in summer months when it is hot outside. It is a worth visit!  more »
  • The church has a distinctive tall tower, in a beautiful square on the bottom of the hill. Not to miss it.  more »
