Really old ruins. Great to view, if you like that kind of building. Near the main square away from the Basilica. Signage all around to explain things. I liked it.

A prime example of a building which nobody knows what to do with. Over the years it has been a church, a hospital, an asylum and a women's prison. A lot of the original stone was used to make other buildings and pavements.

The atmospheric ruins are closed. You cannot walk through them and fences block views. But they are worth taking a look at.
