  • Worth a visit
  • Beautiful church.
  • Italy's churches are weird sometimes. This is a very large number of this degree of workmanship, church art, labor and time have enough value. In a parallel stack, people on the street to roam the store. It's hard to walk on the sidewalk. In this church have two of the hag. But you're looking at just what restoration money nor place this right do you find difficult to him. Sometimes we call beautiful or something terrible. Scary because the gloomy, made countless people's labor and exploitation of your life these buildings but since hand good, because so much labor and skills requires experience, laced with that elusive. Now a few murmured pathetic and a few smart phone been photographing tourists.
