Firstly, it's not that easy to find the ticket office and when you do you only get a small reduction if you have the 7 day Artecard. There were no longer the free guides available in the chapel that were referred to in the 2013 editions of the guidebooks that we had with us, but there were rather floridly written guide boards, in English, praising the founder rather more than the artists! Having said that, the sculpture of the dead, shrouded Christ is a sculptural tour de force and well worth seeing in its own right. The paintings are overly baroque in style for my personal taste but I enjoyed the geometric elements of the patterned mosaic floor which has Masonic references, symbols of which are apparently woven into much of the art packed into the small chapel. The oddly included preserved displays of the blood systems of the human male and female seem to intriguingly predate Gunter von Hagens' plastination technique.
