The church is quite beautiful, is old but is very well maintained. I suggest not to go on prayer time, so that you can admire the sculptures and paintings.

This church was built in the late 1700s in the style of a Greek temple. It has 52 columns. Now, the exterior is under renovation and is partially scaffolded. Inside though is still worth checking out. There are great statues inside and the bronze doors...More
