  • We went to Mass there on Sunday 4 families and the place is very nice. Right across the weekend you can find the vegetable stalls, planted fruits in the area. There are places very close to drinking coffee or hot chocolate and baths in the area in very good condition

  • I liked it very much, the architecture of the church and the whole place is with a Friendly style, there is even a little more cold in that place than the rest of the city, selling original souvenirs, fruits, cheeses and a lot of diversity of things.
