Once inside this church you felt emotional, as it's just so beautiful inside. once we finished looking inside we were able to walk to the restaurant for lunch.. There are restaurants in very close proximity.

Well worth a visit if like me, you love to visit a church. Absolutely stunning inside, with many fine alters and statues. Such a wonderful atmosphere. If you're religious or not, make sure you go and see this 16th Century Baroq masterpiece.
