A good find around almost every bend. You do need to take your sweet time to enjoy it all. It can be a little hot inside during the summer months. Maybe the air-conditioning was down and out. Other than that great for booklovers.

Interesting re-purposing of a church to become a bookshop. Worth popping in to see how well they have done it. Lovely door with books written in many languages and inside there is an ancient fresco relating to St Thomas Aquinas. Not a major site, but...More

A beautiful church on the outside. When you enter it there is an atmosphere of peace. As you walk along the rows of books, there is a feeling of awe. It all matches. I did not have the time to have an in-depth visit and...More
