We were wondering the old town , and came across St Rita, It was stunning inside, worth a look round, Don't judge a book by its cover, out side it's very simply.

This is a small Baroque style church of great beauty. Enjoy the architecture and the special alter to St. Rita. There are works of art on the walls which would be greatly enhanced if they were cleaned.

Located in the old town, this chapel had such a peaceful atmosphere and it was lovely to sit there and look at the wall paintings in the coolness.

The Baroque style interior of this Old Town church is almost over the top. It is so ornate as to semmingly cover every square inch. The paintings alone are worth seeking out this church.
