Even though I went there when it should be open, it was closed. Someone was blocking the doors from inside, and no where was written if it is just temporarely closed. The man didn't explain anything either.

The relic altar piece on the side of this church is like nothing I've seen before. The craftsmanship on this golden masterpiece is so impressive that it will take you a good half an hour to appreciate its content. If you wish to see museum...More

The 2nd of an eyecatching beauty. Not necessary from outside but certainly when you enter the building. Won't take much out of your day but it may leave you slightly breathless.

You can go down on steep steps, to this little hidden church. It is just beautiful. One of the nicest baroque churches in the city.
