  • It is a highly recommended visit, the Basilica is very old and beautiful, this very well-kept. He Museum is small but has a patio very pleasant to be a while. The exhibition of figures construmbista that is located in the Gallery is very interesting. It's all very well maintained. I advise it.

  • Impressive construction dating back to 1927. It is located in the heart of the city. The seven altars of carrara marble give it a unique look. In addition to the Basilicia, also is a school and the Museum of sacred art, which we could not access being closed on weekend.
