Tucked away down an alley, this church is hard to find. It is a nice one but not spectacular, but that is because of the order. It is a pity that there wasn't an information panel explaining to great work undertaken by these wonderful sisters.

One of the biggest cathedrals in town. Real gothic. Now inactive as a church, but still worth a visit. In May 2016 it was partially under reconstruction.

Like others, I could not get in but even from outside the church looked impressive and the pictures of the spire were inspiring from many angles.

This church belonged to the order of the Poor Clares. This order is regarded the strictest women's order of the Roman Catholic church. These nuns are most devoted to prayers, hard work, fasting and other austerities. They generally wear no shoes, eat no meat, remain...More

It is a very nice church, but if there is no concert, you can not visit it. The street which leads to the church isn't in the best condition.
