“Amazing and very different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

This place is amazing, and the things shown for advertisement of this place are really in my opinion not the thing that amazes the most. Usually you see the statues of the 12 prophets, and they are a great piece of art for sure, but the most amazing thing are the chapels with the life size wooden statues of Jesus final days. Follow the story from the lowest chapel and zigzag your way up towards the prophets and be amazed by the artist, later known as, "the little cripple" design and sculpturing talant. A-m-a-z-i-n-g!
