Such a beautiful church, I was lucky enough to be in there on Saturday morning when a couple of hundred young children were in there singing, it was stunning. A beautiful building, it reminded me of the Pantheon in Rome. Saw the replica bomb, a...More

After viewing the huge, and I mean huge, church with a cupola that rivals the Parthenon and St Peter's, you can see the bomb that dropped through the same cupola in WW2. If you look carefully, you can see the whited out square on the...More

Wow!! What a beautiful church this is. Definitely a must visit when you go the Island. You pay a few euros to go inside and see the church, the expo and you can go up to the balcony. Kind staff as well.

The unsupported dome of this stunning church is a highlight. Even at night lit up you get some fab photos!

Paid for full tour which includes the church, walking around the outside at the top and the WW2 tunnels. Excellent. Although have been in church before have never seen the rest. Well worth a visit

An amazing open space inside with the beautifully patterned dome roof. The church is renowned for the WW2 bomb which came through the roof, but didn't explode. an active church, not a museum.

We had visited this church before when there was no entrance fee, it closed at certain times and I don't recall being able to climb stairs to the bottom of the dome. I'm not a fan of paying to go into churches, but I'm guessing...More

Yes, there is an entrance fee of €2. We made this fee so that we have employees to take care of the church during tourists visiting hours

There is public parking quite close by which can get congested. Failing that, on street parking is available. If you or one of your party is a blue badge holder, this makes things a lot easier.
