Great fresques, very impressive. I recommend to ask Tourist Office for the locations so it would be much easier to find it. I do recommend to see that.

Fantastic fresco, one large and a couple small. Very well done and very worthwhile visiting. Located right on the river there’s a lot of other things to see and do while you’re in the area.
