  • It is a small but beautiful church of the Fourteenth century that has been preserved without major alterations architectural, so that you have before your eyes sober on the outside with its roof of "two waters", presenting only a slender Tower belfry of beautiful dome; in the façade a modest Gothic door gives access and next to it the ancient and beautiful clock. Inside it looks replete in carved wood, paintings and altarpieces. The pulpit of wood finely carved with sculptural representations of biblical characters deserves special mention. On occasion visited it we delight to admire so much artistic and historical wealth and listening to a beautiful Youth Choir that brightened the liturgical event which was carried out, was exciting! Income has cost, but is affordable and well worth the visit. Enjoy this church whose visit constitutes a passport to the religious middle ages, it is considered the oldest religious building in the city. LIFE... it's a trip!

  • Right near the Town Hall square. Is a small church, but inside in a historic wooden building on both walls are many religious paintings sorted was. Contrary to expectations, it is good.

  • Inside (entrance 1.5 euro) Catholic gothic church slightly crushes, helping understand the difference of architectural styles on your own back. Quite dark, with little authority. But how good it sounds. Concerts are regularly, you can search the Internet for the schedule.
