Right at the front door you face a galery where they have important priests bodies decomposing, standing up on a showcase, side by side. They are there for centuries and not only the body conditions, clothes and acessories impress by its conditions. Impactual, there is no way you ser this and feel nothing. Inside also there a importante tomb at the botton of the altar together with a saint, also a Strong image to see. Rare and different place to visit.

As the other reviewers, this is a must next to the Cathedral and extremely interesting. I would have loved to have spoken to a guide or done a bit more research before I went there. It is certainly like no other Church I have been to, just stay out of the small room on the left if you want to avoid the mummified priests!

I totally understand the history of churches like this and the exterior showing heaven, hell and purgatory is fascinating. The interior is well done but the display of mummies was not for me!
