“Very reverential atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

Taped music from a Mass in Latin created a prayerful and respectful atmosphere as you entered the church. There is a side altar dedicated to Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Near the main door there is a glass panel and you can see through it to the crypt below.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 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.

Well worth a look inside - beautiful, many weddings take place here for a reason! Great location almost on the beach ensures lots of photo opportunities.

“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.
