This church is gorgeous especially when the sun is setting it is almost purple in color. Definitely worth a look.

We went to a guitar concert here on a Saturday evening. It was sublime. The church is beautiful inside and provides perfect acoustics for the classical guitar.

Nice church. Pity it was rainy afternoon. Would like to have seen it against blue sky. Also the tower crane doesn't make it nicer, but maintenance is needed every now and then I guess. Still it's worth visiting.
