Magnificent old church - the main attraction in town and a absolute must see - photos are allowed inside the church; don't forget to leave a small donation in the collection box.

This is a must see if you're in the SMA area. The weddings, bands, dancers, and people watching really cannot be beat. There is always something going on - a very safe and friendly town square with tons of shops and restaurants all around.

Worth seeing, a peach-colored work that almost makes you think it was built in modern times. When the bells ring, look for the guy way up high in the bell tower -- he'll be ringing the bell by pushing on it so that it swings completely around, then he'll push on it again when it does come around, and so...
