  • Church of the Holy, very nice and impressive. Place of spirituality: "the Saint's uncorrupted language".

  • Important to follow the flow of the faithful in the visitation of all the various chapels, which are many, lush, addictive in the visual and spiritual aspect. Shoot, you can't shoot, there is strong surveillance. Always remember: a place to pray.
