Very interesting historical frescoes and 12th to 13th century design features. It is a very bright interior with occasional concert events. Nearby the Viking Museum so you can spend 1 to 2 hours and see them both.

The original roman basilica is from twelve century and well preserved, later extended by gothic extension. Original precious frescos are visible, beautifully preserved. The old altar is from 15th century. Just great !
