The approach is stunning, through a rare quadriporticus. The Church has a fresco from the 1300's of the pregnant virgin Mary. A Gothic Jewel!

During our daily walk we always pass this Basilica. This one has an impressive interior and it’s big. Sometimes this building is used for concerts too. A multi functional purpose.
