  • This gothic church with its high windows is a great place to visit. Experience the magnitude of the immense space and the beauty of the architecture! Often you will find concerts, debates, etc.

  • The Organ Concert Promenade every Saturday in the summer is something not to be missed in this beautiful church. Also the last art exposition about light and darkness was very impressive in this church setting.
  • I like the place. It's prayerful, minimalistic, bright. Different from overloaded Catholic churches. They also have cool events/concerts that are often for free such as the Saturday organ concerts at 13:30 during summer.
