The church is just a few steps away from the main square and dates back to the 12th century. From the outside, the church doesn't look special, but visiting the interior is quite a must. Climbing the steps in front of the church is worth...More

Locals frequent this church for mass. You can see its facade from the main square and hear its bells ringing every hour

This magnificent church with its typical striped facade has an amazing interior. The altars are adorned with gold, the ceiling is painted like the Sistine chapel, the sculptures remind me of St Peter's in Rome. There is a beautiful bell tower too and the bell...More
