  • Bellissima. Couldn't get my eyes off of it .
  • Interesting place, just like the other italian churches.
  • Imposing, elegant mix of architectural and historical periods, particularly inside. Really nice landscapes from Torrazzo, its bell tower, in the top 3 list of the tallest brick structures in the world.
  • Nice.
