Due to time constraints, I wasn't able to visit the interior of this beautiful building. I contented myself by having a photo session and have included a photo taken on Market Day. The pink color of the sandstone used in construction is unique.

Beautiful church. We enjoyed a mass with incredible music due to the natural acoustics. One can walk out of mass onto Gruners Square and enjoy the food market.

Right in the middle of the main tourist market street, it's a cool quiet place to sit, contemplate and pray.
