This church is quite tall. And looks somewhat European. It's a little bit away from the other attractions but I walked over to look at it. I love churches. It's nice. And tall and worth 5-20 minutes to look at.

This church has just been redone. The carpets removed and the organ plays even better! The trumpets are fantastic! This is a must see church.
