The art works and the frescoes were outstanding. Be sure to get the audio guide and plan on spending 1 1/2 hours. The cup that Christ used at the last supper is believed to be kept in a side chapel - well worth the visit. And don't forget to climb the bell tower, the views are wonderful. I

A beautiful and striking Church with stunning art work and beautiful colours and architecture. The figure of the Virgin over the altar was particularly beautiful

It was quite large, brightly decorated, with lots of details including a wonderful choir. If you want to go and see the details you should not go during the mass but if you want basic overview this is a good time to attend the church.

A beautiful building but the opening/mass times mean you have to be selective about visiting if you want a really close look at some of the statues etc.

Simply stunning! A fantastic sight worthy of a tour. Take time to pause here a while and admire the architecture.

Probably it's a special holy day on the February 11th. We ran into a quire of 30 young boys, saw several small chapels within the church, people waiting for a confession. A catholic church at it's most vivid moments.
