  • Beautiful gothic church externally estae professing Protestantism. Its interior is simple, not as refined as the façade. I had the pleasure of talking with the pastor who explained to me about your story. Next door is the cemetery.

  • We just wanted to take a look at the church and graveyard and got a full tour with a very friendly guide who seemed to know everything about the church and its history. Definitely worth a visit.
