“very special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Wow, it is very interesting to learn about the history of this place, and really peculiar to see the place. It is really worth a visit, but it is not always open, so check in advance

“curious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

this church looks so average, that when i went to visit it i realised that i passed by so many times without noticing it, but that was before i discovered the secret that it keeps inside!! it has the altar room fully made up of human bones, of people who were sentenced to death, died of plague and patients from the psychiatric ward from the 16th century.

“A nice cupola...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

...but that's about it. Fairly plain inside otherwise. Maybe I missed something.
