This church is off the beaten track, through town over the bridge and it opens up with large grounds around it. If you like your history check it out!!

We found this by accident as it isn't on the medieval mile or necessarily one of the highly sought after attractions. Also, by comparison it is quite new, as it was built during the 1800's. Regardless, it is well worth the stop and is attached...More

We visit this church by mistake, because we thought it was the cathedral. Anyway, we went inside and took a look and it is an average church, nothing exciting. It is not ugly, and maybe it worth the time to visit.
