Beautiful church, kind of reminded me of Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. It is centrally located and easily accessible. However, the interiors are inaccessible for another year as renovation work is going on. Do not miss the Sleeping Philomena statue, entrance at the back of the church.

Undergoing renovations when we were there so nothing inside the church was visible but you could still wander through the catacombs - certainly worth a look

We visited this Church on Christmas eve and it was fully crowded. We had to join a big queue to enter the church. The atmosphere was serene and overwhelming seeing people from all religion visiting Church on Christmas eve along with children. Santa Claus and Reindeer decoration was done nearby and people selling hats and candles.

So we were not able to view the interiors. But the tall facades themselves are a sight to behold.The beautiful grand facades against the clear blue skies with eagles and other birds soaring by made... More

Ammazing architecture and quite an old structure. The busy road which abuts the church is perhaps detrimental to this marvellous piece of architecture, since the vibrations may weaken it and the dust that the traffic throws up all sit on it till the next rainy day. Please preserve it and take care. Visitors from abroad, please do take a look.... More
