“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

I visited the Church just to see the Black Madonna. She was worth walking back up the hills to my ride back to Rome.

“Cripta Medievale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The cripta happened to be open one evening as I passed by. It is located on the lower level of the church. The cripta is not large, but had some interesting artifacts.
