It's an incredible display of stained glass in a cool old building hidden inside the justice department complex. I think it was like 10 euros to get in, which is a little steep, but we were happy to pay. The downstairs is, sadly, a bunch...More

This is a small church that is full of beautiful stained glass. There was a long line, but it was definitely worth the wait. Beautiful church.

Yes concerts are held upstairs. Tours end at 6:00 and they set up chairs and they opened the doors again around 7:15.
