Not very embellished. Christ on the cross suspended from the ceiling. The devils footprint at the entrance. The Church is between the 2 big towers in old town. No entrance fee.

This is a lovely church. Ceilings incredibly high, fascinating stained glass, intimate chapels etc. Well worth poking your head in.

As of now (sept. 2018) renovation work is still going on, but having a look at this church is a good idea. Take your time to enjoy and discover interesting details.

Don't know the answer to this. St. Peter is a good idea if you had a good preparation like a lunch or breakfast. I personally did not like the very narrow balcony, It is quite a challenge to pass between two people. But the... More
