Unfortunately, some in the 17th century thought they could do better, demolishing and rebuilding everything... getting in fact an anonymous structure, disproportionate, out of context, and downright ugly.
Outside is probably the original, inside a newer church was simply built in splendour, nevertheless impressively interesting.
