  • An amazing church with amazing history.
  • Gorgeous frescos.
  • Very nice city worth a visit, arrived at sunset, wonderful sight. As it was late, the Cathedral was closed, will stay for the next visit.

  • I can judge only from outside, because when we got there was a funeral and we could not get. The structure is simple and straightforward, in line with the rest of the village. From the front, on the left, through a small staircase leads to a cloister where there is also the Museum of sacred art.
