    I have never been there before, but I would like to go see it. Have seen it in the movie Mama Mia! I like what I seen in the movie. Seems to have nice view from the top and very neat of older setting to the church. Financially I have not been able to go far in personal time, holiday or vacation time. Usually stay home with family doing what needs to be done or helping out family and friends. Someday I hope to see that church and other locations around the world and in my own country.
