Well preserved, quiet, nice place to seat and enjoy peacefulness, not many tourist during the week, a bonus if the Angelus is being sang, near by there are nice places to seat and have some coffee, eat or have a beer.

Beautiful marble architecture both inside and out. The church is closed between 12pm and 3 pm, so plan your visit.
