I did not have a chance to go inside, but I did enjoy looking at it from the outside; it has a beautiful green roof and a nice garden where you can sit and enjoy the scene.

We were asked to pay an unnecessary entry fee to access the church, on the excuse that we could have gone to the rooftop. Not only was the guide totally unprepared about any possible historical hints to be provided, but he also lied about the...More
