We specifically attended 10:30 Sunday Mass in order to enjoy the organ concert afterwards. We spent much time attempting to discover when the concert was scheduled, including the church's website and inquiring at our hotel. Luckily, we arrived early for Mass and enjoyed the end...More

Amazing interior in a church. It’s a prize. You can’t take pictures on the inside but that standard. They have most of the church roped off so you can access it you can just really go to the entrance and look into the church.

Beautiful interior decorations and fresco beyond your expectations. Do pay attention to the “the arm” -- do some search on Google first and look for a black object hanging above the entrance door after you enter the church. And do notice they close in noon...More

We were wandering around when it began to rain. Looking for somewhere to stop for a few minutes, we saw people exiting this church. We hadn’t read anything about it but went in initially just to stay dry. Much to our amazement, we were met...More

ASTONISHINGLY BEAUTIFUL CATHEDRAL! While it is a little underwhelming on the outside, the inside is amazing! There are plentiful of alters, statues and plaques decorated around the church. The most i’ve seen so far. One thing is, no photography is allowed but i couldn’t resist...More

Wheelchair access - YES Vast dimly lit interior filled with dark and dust-laden devotional sculptures. There was no way of knowing whether the burst of quite heavenly organ music was played by an unseen organist or the switch of a tape-recorder.

Totally free and well worth popping in. The church is stunning and never very crowded. Never seen such strong baroque architecture in a church, free access to all parts of the church as well. The ceiling is painted and pretty incredible! Don’t miss it!

Recommended by our Walking Tour guide to see the mummified arm! The church itself is very beautiful.

We visited this church while on a walking tour and we were told a good story about an old dried out arm hanging in the church. Inside is very lovely, the outside has some terrific stone features that are really worth looking at , I...More

This church is just off Old Square and free to enter. Inside the baroque style is everywhere and the ceilings are beautifully painted with frescos. Seems smaller inside than it appears from the outside and we were only in there 10 minutes but definitely worth...More
