Nice church, recommended as a quick stop. The first church was built in 1707 and rebuilt in 1739, but the English destroyed that one in 1761. Then it was built again in 1765, that is the current one.

The church looks average in terms of attraction. From inside also, no exceptional decoration is there. Just a normal place.
