Absolutely huge with a lot of gilt in the interior. Beautiful burgundy upgrades on the outside upper levels of the building. Very distinctive.

You need to go inside and get a tourist guide to be able to understand all the magnificence of the Church. There is a lot of history behind all the paints, altars, sculptures, etc. It is incredible to see an Altar about 60 feet high...More
