Peaceful sanctuary

Visited Christmas afternoon. So beautiful and peaceful. Worth paying the €1 charge for pictures without a doubt

Went here with the waling group. Roccoco as they like it in these places. Don't see that so much in the rest of Western Europe.

Coming in from a grey day this was a delight, a wonderful rich and bright display of the best of Baroque art. Pay the Euro and take as many pictures as you like - the Christmas crib was on display and was so intricate.

The title says it all. Gold and silver everywhere. Paintings, marble also. Great architecture. You can take photographs by making a small payment.

This is one of the smaller, but beautiful cathedrals in Europe. They allow pictures if you make a donation.

Outside the cathedral is dull gray but on entering one finds one of the most beautiful buildings in what I would say 'the world.' We have toured churches around the world including the St Peters in Rome and churches in Florence, but this has to rate as one of the best.

Worth stopping in if you have a chance! Breathtaking inside, from the painted celilings to the intricate details of the architecture. Quaint cemetery as well.

Amazing architecture and paintings. Small but worth it. Very central in Old Town and taking pictures is allowed by buying a photo ticket (1 euro)

We visited on a Sunday afternoon when not too many people were around. Make sure you pay a euro for a ticket to take photos. The interior & detail is stunning. We spent a short amount of time here but it was great to soak up the culture and history of the place. Well worth visiting.
