I have never been so impressed by the design and thought put into this building. The entrance is around the side. The lighting comes via the crystal in the twenty rows of stepped window and whilst you are in the church you are reminded that...More

Special arc shape design by the architect Ruben Martinez that catches the exterior light very nicely, especially early morning and late afternoon. Do not forget to visit the Via Crussis at the back of the church that consists of a beautiful collection of sculptures made...More

Yet, this is an spectacular church. It is built arched to create the eye of Jesuschrist made of crystals that reflect on the center of the church. Quite astonishing
