  • Nice cloister and Chapel the Church is at the foot of the Castle and at the exit we find ourselves in the city center

  • Hidden away, the walk to the church alone was worth it. Unfortunately I had exposed shoulders so I chose not to go inside but the exterior was still beautiful & the view was amazing.  more »
  • Beautiful church with amazing views when you get there. If you go and it is raining, be very careful as the cobblestone streets/walkways get very slippery.  more »

  • Beautiful little church. It is also, I believe, an active Franciscan monastery, so please respect the location and its inhabitants. The church itself [the actual church, not the compound] is beautiful, the interior plain and simple, with a gilded Gothic altar, and a wooden crucifix. Flanking the altar are devotional statues of Mary and St. Francis himself, and on the walls are the Stations of the Cross. Outside, you can see various pieces of stonework, and in the cloister, the resident turtles. It does not take a long time to visit, and I believe there is admission, what is it, I cannot recall.
  • Almost hidden away oasis of peace. Small, but cozy and lovely monastery with pretty architecture, a tortoise garden, and a small archaeological site inside.
  • Tha garden of the monastery is beautifull and there are lots of cute turtles walking around in it.
  • Pleasant, quiet atrium with fine architecture, some archeologic artifacts and a small churh. Don't know if We had free admission only because it was Sunday.
  • Very interesting church. Well-maintained
