  • The church is painted... coming from Europe, it is not so often we can enjoy such a place. I had a real peaceful moment for my heart for my eyes :)
  • Oh My Goodness! Seeing is believing! Only when you are there you can understand what time-travel really means. It feels like stepping into the XVII Century, during the Glory Days of Roman Catholicism. The sounds and shapes lead you into an introspective state; then you can only think God, how Great He is, and how small and fickle we are.
  • A beautiful grand church, open to the public. It is a busy location but the building itself is excellently maintained.
  • Well kept and beautifully decorated interiors. Be cautious about the 1pm mass, I went to watch it only two times, and in both I arrived on time but it looked like it had started 15 minutes earlier
  • Great place to visit in the middle of the downtown chaos! Masses are cool and if you can see one with the GEORGIAN CHANTS and organ playing, it's spectacular!
