So quiet and beautiful place. A whole Bible painted in wooden stalls. Do not overlooked an old tower bell, displayed there, which has melted and was destroyed during the great fire several years ago.

This old church is just amazing in so many ways. The wooden interior, the stained glass, the atmosphere, everything inside sets it apart from other churches in the city.

An old church near the town square, it has many old pews and art pieces that are genuinely old and original. Has a real feel about it. And the clock is great.

The church charges a small fee to enter but it is worth visiting to see the stained glass windows and walk up the spiral staircases into the gallery.

I found this church to be very interesting, mostly because of the clock located on the side facing the square. I also liked the little alley leading from it to the Town hall square. Across it is the guild which is a nice building as...More
