  • Very impressive the funeral monument of Maximilian I surrounded by bodyguards bronze fine workmanship and measurably! It costs 7 euro per person but worth it, because this is something very rare to see! Mauro

  • Despite being a short visit, its definitely worth it. The monument, which was to be the tomb of Maximilian First, with its towering statues (Recalling among other things the Alliance with the Grand Duchy of Milan) is really impressive. Recently, the visit was enriched by a short multimedia presentation to see before entering the Church proper. The cost is not exactly cheap for a visit so short (7 euros per person), but still acceptable. Do not recommend instead the Museum (price aside).

  • Atmosphere and very impressive. Majesty of the statue and value of details. Truly not to be missed. Everyone deserves the 5 euros paid upon entry.
