Interesting history, beautiful views. 600 steps and €3 you can walk the tight winding stairway to the top!

The church was pretty inside although it was rebuilt. The steps to the top of the tower is worth it - the view is incredible.

The church is under construction right now so that sucks for pictures. Inside of it I have seen way better. From the outside it would be nice if it wasn’t for the construction

We had a very special visit since we stay for mass and we thought it was going to be in english but i was in german...the special thing is that since Catolicism is universal, we celebrated the same faith in different language...it was amazing!

They do have Mass a few times a day (there's a schedule in the front), but I don't think it's in English. Hope that helps.
