Unattractive architecture. Not impressed at all. It shouldn't even be listed as a tourist attraction. Skip it.

Amazing place of worship, peaceful, calm and usually filled with people on Sunday masses., situated ideally and since we stay close by., makes it easier to visit mostly as a family.

I love great architecture and this church is worth the visit. It has beautiful contemporary architecture, a style truly its own and one I couldn't pinpoint. It's a short bus ride from the main bus station.

A very unusual looking church, built in the 1930's I think. It still looks very modern and is unusual in that it doesn't have columns inside despite the size. Very tastefully decorated and worth a visit. It's a copy of a church built in the...More
