This was quite a place to see! Truly a demonstration of the wealth of the Catholic church! It is free to visit after 2:00 (on Sunday, at least). We passed by the church with our tour guide in the morning, and we returned when they opened. It was well worth the visit! Although there was not any narrative in English, we'd seen enough churches to appreciate on some level what were looking at. I'd plan on spending 15-30 minutes to walk around and let everything sink in (depending on how much you like that sort of thing).
