  • It is a very old church, which was used as a cemetery, and is currently the visit with guide, which is very interesting. The library of the Church/convent is beautiful. The courtyards have some fresh beautiful and some mosaics that leave you speechless, imported from Spain. And the catacombs are interesting and are prepared for the visit. Impacts the amount of people who are buried there. Not to miss.
