We called in after a wedding. The stairs had been decorated with flowers and there were many flowers in the church. Nothing special but well worth a visit. .

A very detailed facade but relatively plain within except for magnificent wooden organ gallery and the tomb of The Baron, a very interesting and engaged man.

Beautiful church tucked away. It's a place of peace and we lit two remembrance candles. Definitely visit.

Tucked away on a small square it is easy to miss this gem but well worth having a look inside. It is a great photo opportunity if you stand on the stairs.
