We came during Easter week so they had palm leaves on display which was amazing. The stained glass windows look beautiful. Great to walk around taking it all in.

Beautiful experience. Church was open and we were able to go inside. By coincidence, an organist was practicing and it was lovely to listen to the music as we walked around.
