“A lovely church, quiet and calm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Walk down the alley from Strada Lipscari opposite Strada Selari, past a couple of sleazy bars and straight across the parking chaos of Strada Blanari to reach this church. It is not far and well worth it for the contrast of the shadowy church interior and its sense of peace. It looks its 300 yearold age outside, but is beautiful inside.
