Great little Church where you can ring the bell and make a wish that hopefully will come true. You can clime a bell tower and have a great view.

The church is under repairs but you can feel the peace inside when you visit and the Chuch bells make it another important point to visit the place.

Despite the repairs ongoing in the church it was well worth visiting. White, clean and sparkling the church was really lovely. An added bonus was ringing the bell!
