Although not that impressive from the outside the inside is superb. The baroque design is magnificent. The church is in a lovely square and access is good for all

This Jesuit church is a must see. Already the close neighborhood is worth the visit, but look at the interior with an immense Rubens painting above the altar. Fantastic!

Most catholic churches have impressive altar pieces, and so does this one. The exterior looked very nice and old, but I was not impressed with the interior. Entrance was free, so nothing to complain. Just jump in when you're around.

Amazing church of the city centre with a wonderful facade and a nice square just in front. Come and take your time to give a look to its majesty.

Very beautiful church with very classical design and architecture. Restoration is going on at the moment but the main complex still looks very stunning and amazing. Must go for every history lovers.
