Nice Palace for Archbishops

Wonderful site to see the Archbishops Palace and looking into some very special works of art to the daily living of an Archbishop. Beautiful and sometime breathless. Everything is well kept and worth a visit.

This place is amazing and well worth a view. The entry is the best part of this place. Very photogenic little home. It is amazing to see how the church took care of it's leaders. This place is an amazing display of wealth and power.
