Excellent architecture. Stunning views over the city particularly at sunset. You can see behind the facades into the courtyards beyond. And only 15Bs entrance. Bargain. Highly recommended.

Simple, but beautiful church with lovely architecture. The church has 4 beautiful angel sculptures. Look in the classrooms (it's a private girls school) and you'll feel like you stepped back into the 1950's. The view from the roof is definitely worthwhile.

After five visits here we eventually figured out to get in! It's a school so tourists can only get in in the afternoon after 2:30. Ring the doorbell, pay the entry fee and then you get to marvel at the beautiful building with fantastic views...More

We came here and really enjoyed, particularly the roof top views which were breathtaking. The church is a vast complex and it takes some 1-2 hours to explore.
