Like it tired travelling will rested and cooled feel interior has good work better for praying atmosphere all most done
The Armenians inherited this church from the Augustinian Friars, so there's not really very much of their distinctive architecture and art. However, the Baroque interior is spectacular. Not often open apart from Sundays.
