Although a bit of a walk from the centre its worth stopping here for a look around on the way to the windmills and city gates. A beautiful medieval church interior and museum that was well worth a 30 min-45 min look around

Church and museum that has artifacts collected by nuns dating back to the 14th century. The church itself still functions as a church and is quiet and attraction.

Located somewhat north of the main tourist attraction is the museum and church of the Potterie, a still working convent, I was told when entering. The museum displays some of the items that belonged to the convent. There are few really world class objects on...More
