A beautiful church which stands on the site of a former synagogue. The interior is very grand and the ceiling is stunning. The congregation is welcoming of visitors and the church is a hidden gem in the city.

The façade of the this church is all that is left of the old synagogue and dates from the medieval period, but behind that is a Rococo nave with stucco work so amazing you almost forgive the "redecoration". The altar piece is good as well....More

Standing on the site of a former synagogue, this small church has an ornate white ceiling that is quite impressive.
