We started looking for this little gem of a church last year, but couldn't find it even with the help of locals and a tour company. This year the scaffolding was gone and the sign pointing the way was visible. Our first attempt was foiled by the church's hours (open 7 a.m. to noon, then closed until 3 or 4 until 7 p.m.). We came back later in the afternoon and were completely blown away by the magnificent mosaics, paintings and structure of this small church. No flash photography allowed, but I learned for my little camera I got better shots without the flash anyway. There is restoration of paintings taking place and there is a place to purchase postcards of the mosaics (which were the only postcards I bought for myself to keep). As it was late afternoon and the sun was setting, we left but returned at 8 a.m. the next day to watch the sun enter the church through the small, high windows. It was spectacular. Strongly recommend visiting this wonderful place.
