Go ahead despite a rather plain exterior appearance.

Vitraux très colorés et parfaitement conservés . L'extérieur est banal mais il faut rentrer pour être enchanté more »Very colorful and perfectly preserved stained glass. The outside is trite, but you get to be enchanted

Onder het begrip kathedraal stel ik me vaak een groots en imposant bouwwerk voor met veel pracht en praal. Deze kathedraal is wat het exterieur betreft het tegenovergestelde. Pure eenvoud en soberheid... more »The term Cathedral I imagine often a grand and impressive construction work for with great pomp and circumstance. This Cathedral is what the exterior concerns the opposite. Pure simplicity and sobriety are the main features. The construction work does contain some important works of art. Unfortunately limited opening up.

Outside, the cathedral is impressive. Because closing at noon we could not get inside. The city is small and this is one of the sights, so it's worth seeing.

Beautiful church. Peaceful holly place
Daniël de WitAugust 23, 2017A stately Cathedral which is free to visit. The access doors are wonderful. In the church you have the option to burn a candle for someone.
Jordi Aran RicoAugust 14, 2017The Cathedral, although it is small, it is pretty good. The inside is not to throw backyard rocket but not bad. The cathedral, which is small, is OK. It is not the best one I have ever seen but it's not bad.
Olexiy ZozulyaAugust 5, 2017Nice old church. Bowl for washing of hands made out of giant shell painting.
