Don't miss this church if walking around Rye - it is free to enter and is very peaceful with a beautiful marble alter and pulpit with an Italianate feel to it.

What a beautiful church with a holy and peaceful atmosphere. The interior has a real Mediterranean feel with its beautiful icons and marble and is a lovely surprise when you enter - not what you would expect to find in a country town.

Lots of Italian style marble and an interesting alter with statues of the Madonna, St Anthony and mother and child. Very restful. See the stations of the cross.

In amongst the houses, this looks tiny from the outside. It is currently undergoing some buiding work but you can still access and view the inside. Some stunning marble at the pulpit and alter, with beautiful art and stained glass adorning the walls.
