Probably the most beautiful church I have ever seen. It’s small but the baroque style gives such an amazing scenery that you could stay seated there admiring the ceilin and the beautiful art around for hours.

The roof has collapsed and the church is CLOSED Others in the area are also closed. The roofs are covered with tarps and repairs are under way. It will take some time.
