There is a fee to enter but for €3, it is worth every penny. Besides the architecture marvel, the acoustic inside is really good too.

This church was built by carving directly into a huge rock. So it is about 2/3 underground with solid rock wall. The roof was made by coiling a long strip of copper. An amazing structure. You have to see to believe.

Rich church is a must visit. This church is unique as it is not overly decorated, is made of rock and one can experience so much peace and serenity when visiting it.

A short easy walk from the centre of town leads you to a quiet and peaceful space which belongs to the Rock Church. Definitely not the AC/DC type ‘Let There Be Rock’ but the complete opposite. Splendid architecture hewn from sold rock, polished concrete and...More

I wandered up to this church late afternoon. Seemingly cut into rock slightly below ground. It has a stone wall above ground which supports the glass and copper? roof. Inside a lovely circular space with main floor and balcony seating. An organ and 'stage' space....More
