  • This church was very beautiful the stained glass was incredible. When the sun was shining just to enter the cool and dimly lit church and spend a few minutes reflecting was perfect.  more »
  • What a pretty church, reminds us of a small florence duomo with the style. Inside is a great museum too.  more »
