Much smaller inside than it looks from the outside, but a very peaceful and spiritual feel inside (even if some of the decoration above the high altar is somewhat gaudy and more reminiscent of a Mediterranean catholic church!)

The building is beautiful and very interesting to read the graves surrounding it. Full of history. Very enjoyable to visit.

This church may not be huge, but wow is it beautiful. The solid silver altar glitters, and the rest of the church lives up to it. Free to look around, and a must if in the area

It was fascinating to see where the royal family spend their Christmases. We didn’t get to spend much time in the church but it was one of the most impressive small churches I have seen.

A must when visiting the area, there is no charge, although donations are welcome. A beautiful alter, the church glitters, a peaceful haven.
