We did not actually go inside the church but walked by and enjoyed the view and the small peaceful square that it is located in. Worth passing by.

A mix of Ancient modern historical church, charming character. medieval outer architecture, apparently damaged a lot in WW11 and subsequently rebuilt portion is the modern part, very contrasting and pleasant feel, beautiful stained glass.
