It was a small church which was charming, but nothing extremely interesting. If you’re religious, then maybe you can find something interesting there, but for non-religious visitors, it’s just average.

We couldn´t identify the building from outside, for me it looked like jail or something similar, but when we came closer and inside, we were nicely surprised, that´s church. It had very good atmosphere. I was charmed.

If you visit this village this church is really nice to visit. It's very small but beautiful. Nice pause in the touristic Street.
