There is a consistent feeling experienced visiting places of such importance, expectation. The leaflet handout states as follows. It is surprising, and few imagine, that behind its facade, which has more of a civil than religious appearance, two very different types of superimposed spaces can...More

Worth the visit for 30 to 45 minutes. We were fortunate in that it was closing 20 minutes before we got there in the afternoon and that there were not many people inside and entry was therefore free (Normally a small charge and charge is...More
