The first thing you will notice is the colorful dome. Then there is the colorful interior. It dates from the Middle Ages, but it was heavily remodeled in the mid 18th century, and again with the addition of the paintings near the ceiling.

Just off of the Main Street, but well sign posted. Set in its own square. Picturesque church with colourful domes, dedicated to Saint Paul , well worth a trip if you are in the area.
