An unusual interior with lots of black and white marble. You have to pay to see it all, once inside, but it is worth paying the small fee to see it all and to see some amazing underground tombs that have been excavated.

Light. spacious with excellent stained glass windows. Still under repair. Not totally different to other churches in the region. Free entry. A quiet respectful visit is expected.

This is a beautiful church, less adorned than many, but has a very nice feeling to it as a place for prayerful reflection.
