So beautiful.

It is beautiful, VP. There are no signs of the war damage 70 years ago.

It's exquisite... and in a way, not over the top, like you might expect with a Catholic church.

Luis Gomez said...

Very pretty VP.

Wow, it is really pretty.
Nice light, but a bit strange to see the windows so high up on the walls.
