The church is pretty simple with very nice wall paintings that impressed me with the lack of complexity and the painter view of the divinity.

Fine place to visit. MUST see the old church dating back to the 17th century, not only the new church.

This is a beautiful place to visit for relaxation. Definitely recommend a visit at the old church and new church, very good for the soul. You can also find a bit of history here, as a prime ministers tomb is hidden in the old chuch.
