    As Church gives you one hundred laps to the Basilica in the blood, both in aesthetics, historical importance and meaning. Barely receives visits since it is in a State of eternal service.

    Beautiful ensemble. Is in the city centre, opposite the Church on the blood. Near the small square and the old farmstead. Required to attend during a stroll through the city centre.
