  • After much fortified churches very similar to each other, this is well worth the visit as unique and special. Within the walls there is a whole village divided into numbered cells inside some of which is collected some objects of the period. Wooden stairs wind through a plan up to take you away to the walkway inside the walls, very impressive. Dedicated 1 hour of your trip to visit this place perfectly maintained that brings you back in time.
