One of two beautiful churches in Risor, as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside. Well worth a visit. Take lots of pictures. The grounds and the stones are also very interesting.

Absolutely gorgeous, the cloud painted ceiling, the Ruben copy of "The Last Supper" etc. are fantastic. We're coming back for the Chamber Music Festival that is performed in this church, the perfect venue for just such an occasion.
