  • It is wonderfully carved façade, very beautiful stained-glass Windows inside the Church. Visit the flickering of the February snow season and because most other tourist, had to enjoy the splendor of the Church. However, to the underground Crypt is in this winter not Saturday admission only. Fresco of Christ riding a horse but unfortunately couldn't see. This church to refer to themselves, of course, watching from the other side of the River have fun. Really beautiful!

  • A wonder of the Gothic movement. Some painting, architecture outside the norm, giant and colorful stained glass windows to the magical air, all in a very spiritual darkness; to see in the first place!
