I spent a solid hour here admiring the beautiful artwork in God's Albacete house. Just absolutely beautiful and very peaceful inside. I actually visited 3 days straight. Beautiful little park across the street with fountain.

The church inside is really well decorated and looks great. Am not a religious person but could admire the artwork. If in Albacete it's certainly worth a visit

Worth a look if you're in the area but nothing spectacular. Don't go out of your way to see it. But it's near the center so it's not inconvenient.

If you are in the area, then have a look inside the church. Very beautiful decorations all over. Lots of colour.
