  • Typical German architecture, as the whole village. Who knew, a bit Germanicus in the tropics. Good to spend a day in the mountains.

  • a church normal type, with 300 people taking pictures as if it were the Cathedral of Rome. the time that is spent on down to the plaza is not worth

  • This church has two naves which converge on the main altar. It is an impressive, sober and elegant simplicity. Dedicated to Saint Martin of Tours.
