For international travelers, their first reaction when they see a church, they say "another one." In they go. They chalk up #4342. To their amazement, each church is very unique. This easy to access church will not be a disappointment. You will appreciate your visit....More

Simply overwhelmed by the attention to detail in this place. Always worth going into these places and spending 5 minutes to reflect on it. You can understand why these places stand the test of time. Awesome!

Though smaller than the Parisian version this version more reflects the way a cathedral should look. Very quiet inside and not chock full of tourists (like us!!)...Do visit

If you like traditional Latin Mass, it IS the church to go to ! On Sundays, at 10 am, It is Usus Antiquior Mass, with gregorian chants.
