    If you go up the tower during winter, be prepared for freezing bone chilling temperatures and the wind whipping through the small space at a frenzied pace.

    The inside of the church is pretty bare if you are used to the ornate European churches

    Good place to go and see. Free entry but you have to pay to go up the tower. Worth it though for the views

    The inside is fairly simplistic but the view from the top of the tower is great. Make sure you bring your amateur radio equipment! :)

    I personally didn't find it worth visiting. They charge 5Euros to get up there but no one is checking if you have a ticket.

    It's a very iconic architecture. Take the lift up to the top to see the beautiful view. From there you'll actually see how colourful the houses are.
