It's magnificent, and it looks like it was transported from Italy by aliens, and not the immigrant kind! What changed in my 3 years living there is the addition of an absolutely heinous LCD display giving times and languages of masses! It's also unfortunately barricaded with gates. You can only enter it during mass hours.
