Highly ornate interior worth seeing. Observed a religious ceremony going on during our visit in a side chapel. The priest was chanting and a group of women singing. Otherworldly!

I have visited hundreds of churches but even I was impressed with the gorgeous green and baroque interior of this church. Also the addition of the saints's bodies under a wood canopy (they're covered with a rich brocade and only their slippered feet peek out)...More

The interior of this church is absolutely stunning, and it was lovely to see so many women working away to make it shine and keep it beautiful. I don't think I've seen so many flowers outside of a florist! As a couple in our sixties,...More
