This is a wonderful church, mass is said there each year on St Anthony's feast day, 13th June. The gold work is just amazing to see. The vestments are splendid. They also have a wonderful collection of old coins on view.

You first go into the museum that is connected to the church which was very interesting. All the prehistoric finds and the local culture. The church is very impressive. There is gilding everywhere! but is in need of a bit of repair.

Without doubt the best surprise of our holiday. We didn't expect it to have as much history within it. The carvings around the alter were worth the 3 euro entry fee alone.
