  • This is a fantastic place to visit. I went there when it was still being restored so some areas were off limits. But what was available was very impressive. I can't wait for it to be finished.
  • This was interesting. I was fascinated to see a church structurally completely a long time ago, yet incomplete on the interior, due to the political climate. It is currently being completed, however they could not tell us when it would be done. Fascinating.
