Located in the busy pedestrain zone, this beautiful small church is worth the few meters to step in. I personally like to have a quiet (and cool) moment of rest there.

This small church is absolutely impressive from its interior. Very old paintings, all nicely preserved. Compared to the big Cathedral the size is much smaller, but you feel even more the history of this country. I think this is a "must" for every visitor to...More
