Even if you're not religious you cannnot fail to admire the stunning building that is the Church of Francis of Assisi. We did a tour on an open top bus and this was one of the stops.

The church has been built by Italians, inside you can find a big organ. During the Sunday mass at 10 a.m. you can enjoy it's music. The church is part of the Catholic Church of Greece, and it is belong the Holy Land Custody.
