  • Unfortunately I could not see her in, because it was closed. Finally today 26 feb, I could visit it as it is so beautiful and well worth it. Different from other churches, you can take a ride with a guided tour, starting from the inside and down into the crypt. There are several works that were part of the Church Maria della Scala, transported before being demolished.
