They say this is the most photographed church in the world, and while I may have my doubts, it is one of the more interesting and beautiful churches around.

Nice quick stop, to check off the list. Not a destination. Although it is a worship place, there is something lacking! Peace and serenity may be!

We couldn't get inside on the day we visited, but our guide gave us a lot of history about this church. Hope it will be open if we ever go back. Amazing history!

Easy parking at the back of the church (which is the street side) or go around the church (from either side) and park at the front of the church. I know seems confusing but it's not once you're there!
