A hidden jewel

Gorgeous small church, unexpectedly mediterranean. Not to be missed - any time, but especially if you can visit on a sunny day when the light touches the gold.

What a beautiful church! Completely tranquil and quiet - a real retreat. Very spiritual atmosphere, and we enjoyed sitting quietly soaking it all in.

A lovely small historical RC church that you notice wandering around Rye . Worth a visit as it is very different from other churches

What a beautiful church centered in Rye , on the outside , it is very unassuming, once we entered , the peace and the beauty of the place struck me , it's very ornate and has lovely statues of the saints around the church , and of course a main one to St Anthony , truly beautiful

Having visited the original St Anthony cathedral in Padua we stopped in at this pretty little church to say a quiet prayer. Worth five minutes to say a prayer and visit this nice church in Rye.
