I saw an amazing light show. It almost felt like watching a show at Disneyland. The sounds and lights were incredible. However, some of the music was a bit eerie in the church. The church is gorgeous and contains an intricate carving staircase. At the...More

Great, stunning views of the city!! Well connected by public transport though a hike up the mountain from which the city derives it’s name is recommended.

We missed the 'Aura' show the night we were in the city. You need to purchase your tickets that day from the Church Boutique for that nights show - usually two shows an evening.

Structures like this are always amazing. The architecture. The building. The history. The detail. Definitely worth walking through if you are in the area.

If there is one thing you see in this city be sure this is it. The architecture is unbelievable. Stay long enough to hear the organ player perform. This is well worth any wait you might have to get in.

Really. That’s is all that can be said. It is amazing inside and I wish I could have heard the organ which is usually 230/330. Bring 6$ cash
