  • A small town, but that's all a special charm, if you have time to get to know, can go.

  • A great walk, a little sporty by time; but it is worth. The Basilica is absolutely to see if it passes into the corner. History, spirituality, a very nice site.

  • Breath taking sights.
  • Third tomb of Christendom, this Basilica is imposing and beautiful. Don't forget by to see the crypt during your visit so to visit the cloister next door that is accessible during the opening of the tourism office (the rest of the time it is a hotel / restaurant)

  • A very good point: the free parking within 5 minute walk. Enjoy the Wednesday market to make a stone two strokes!
