  • Come and pray and known history is worth taking a little time to get to know, very cool and beautiful, the history of the Church

  • the tour in the historic center is an incredible attraction, we did with John Flytour's Guide and worth every second. The Church is located next to the Museum, which was the old penitentiary of the village. The history of the place is amazing, the view breathtaking. Pictures inside the Church are not allowed.

  • The Church is in the historic centre, the place is quiet and with incredible view. However it was closed when we visited, even though day of week.

  • Nice ride, worth knowing. But go on their own, otherwise you will lose a whole day going with a travel agency.
