  • An old Church. You can go in, but much better from outside. You can approach it with an elevator or by walk. There are a lot of restaurants in nearby. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy the view. 🍷

For those that celebrate Mass, they do have regular services. The church does close down in the evening so plan your visit accordingly. Worth checking out!
