Whilst the original church was built in 1584, it soon became too small for its growing parish and was thus rebuilt in 1637. Often described as the site of a ‘miracle’, the church miraculously survived the horrendous World War ll bombing, which devastated the rest of the town.

Whilst its spectacular bell towers are sure to impress you from the outside, step inside its majestic doors and prepare to be amazed! Though brimming with splendid sculptures and paintings, the piece de resistance has to be the exquisite silver gem-encrusted statue of the Virgin Mary, so captivating you’ll struggle to tear yourself away.
