  • The Basilica of Saint Thomas the Apostle is located in the heart of the city. Inside are the remains of Saint Thomas the apostle. A place that I recommend to visit therefore also for this reason alone. Maybe many would have expected something more artistically, but they forget the very serious wounds inflicted to the basilica from the war. Recommended in any case.

  • beautiful outside but inside modern whole restructuring in medieval charm to a basilica removed. I was pretty disappointed and perplexed

  • One of the most beautiful churches in the area, recently restored in some parts and with an influx of pilgrims from all over the world really notable for the presence (obviously not recognized by the Church) of the sacred bones of one of the twelve apostles who lived with Jesus or St Thomas called Didymus. the only one who touched with his hands his SS. sores!! The sore point?? Should take better care of opening hours especially during the summer anyway nice nice!!
