Beautiful church to visit, with the entry fee you get an audio tour (English) which was very well done and informative and access to the bell tower, which was a highlight for me!! Beautiful views over the old town and the most INCREDIBLE spiral staircase!!!

The visit was made better with the assistance of an audio guide. Gives great details. The altar is stunning! Well worth the climb up the bell tower too. Provides fabulous views over the city.

We attended a service but never felt that the entrance fee was worth it apart from the fact that the money must help preserve the building and art

View from tower was OK but better from taller tower at San Francisco Javier church on other side of Plaza de San Jorge. Costs a euro to get in... fair deal for being able to enjoy the beauty.

The Church of Santa Maria is well worth a visit. Only €1 entry fee. It has a wonderful altar and historical exhibits.

I think it was just €1 to go in. Nothing special inside, other than one rather good chapel (see photo), but a walk up the tower was very well worth it for the magnificent views. It's not right up the hill in the old quarter...More

This came as a surprise to us. We were expecting something a bit less special and were really pleased to find that it was actually a really attractive church with a brilliant wooden altarpiece, carved out of walnut wood. The altarpiece is a standout item...More
