Wow! Have seen many churches and this one does not disappoint. Very intricate and detailed. Do yourself a favour and pay this one a visit. Only asks for a 1 euro donation per person.

this church is close to the university and it is worth the visit.Keep in mind you need to pay to enter, 1 euro for charity. The church is beautiful and incredible, full of details everywhere. the silence inside the church is overwelming.
