Fantastic church with stunning views of the city! If you can walk, do it! Otherwise go by the yellow teleferic tram or by car. Worth it for many reasons to do climb the hill! Church is massive with awesome glass paints.
Beautiful place with great views on the area. I would recommend going to the top of the tower if you can. There's a garden where you can spend some time,have a little picnic 🙂
