  • Central church in the heart of the city! Not my favourite but still interesting, without any doubt. Not a problem to find it, just by the City Hall!  more »
  • This attractive Catholic church is located on the other side of the road from the old City Hall building. Fairly standard design and similar to other Catholic churches around the world.  more »
