With the back against the ring, the old Dominican chrch does not immediately jump into your sight. As the exterior also is rather modest and grey, one could easily walk by without noticing it. The facade is somewhat richer in decorations and style and is inviting you in. Not doing so would be a big mistake, as the most important beauty (as always) lies on the inside of the church. In a rather dark interior, rich glow of gold and silver, as well as colurful paintings, are very pretty. Besides that, such a quiet place is also always an energyboost to the next intensive hours of a city walk.
