After much searching we found it eventually and I'm so glad we did. We happened to come in while a string quartet were practising and itt really added to the atmosphere!

“A nice, simple church to tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

A very simple church and can easily be combined while touring other sites in the downtown area. The clock face on the tower is the largest in Europe. The interior is mostly white stone and marble mixed in the the brown marble columns and wooden pulpit and chairs for worshipers. A large organ is also located on the upper level in the rear. This church is easily viewed in less than 10 minutes. Hours of operation are: Mon-Fri 8-18, Sat 8-16, Sun 11-17. Church services are held on Sunday from 10-11.

“The stunning bell tower”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

In my personal opinion it is the most beautiful of all the other churches of the city, small but lovely, in the historic center, it is located directly on the bank of the river which makes it even more distinctive.
Artistically beautiful but its peculiarity is the beautiful watchmaking placed on the tower, really characteristic.
