Churches are nice historical buildings, and the art is sometimes worth visiting. Here you can see a Rubens, so hop in and see for yourself!

Words can't do this justice! Stunning in every respect. Just wish we had more time to stay in there, but will have to research it on line, & maybe return next trip. We're not particcu;larly religious, but lit some candles & had some thoughts of...More
