Contrast between exterior and interior which is extraordinary and takes a while to look round and absorb all the details. Well worth a visit.

Don't let yourself stop visiting this extraordinary church. Spectacular art interior lighted by pushing the button on the right site of the entrance. The style is somewhere between art deco, Gaudi and Riviera

Gorgeous, wonderful, there are no other words to describe this church. Art deco style at its best. Some more light woul have not disturbed, but little dark is adding charm to this charmful chuch.
