From the outside this building is very special but when you enter it takes your breath away. The painting of Christ rising is really astounding and the whole ambiance is truly stupendous. I can highly recommend a visit to here.

Lovely church that is not as old as you may think it has amazing views from the main steps up to the front and a beautifully serene and prayerful area beneath for private prayer and reflection

In a fantastic spot high over the town with views over the estuary. The building and its surroundings are serene and we were lucky enough to be there when a nun sang unaccompanied for a few minutes, beautiful experience.

Sorry for delay, admission is free. If you like going up to bell tower, each has separate elevator and you have to pay. It was 1 euro each. The one on the right has extra narrow steps to the top, the one on left has... More
