A remarkable, beautiful and most interesting building, which can only been seen from the outside unfortunately.

“nicer interior than Milan's duomo”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Some tapestries under repair but too many intracacies to see them all, could have spent more time inside.

“A lot to see”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

If you really try to look at every piece there is, you need to stay a long time. Within an hour head is filled with historical artwork. Another visit next day might be needed.

“Very decorative”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Nice, rich interior. I've spend some time just hanging around, changing from one bench to another just to have a more detailed look at bits and pieces in this church.

“You'd never guess what's inside”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This church was covered wall to wall, floor to ceiling, with "stuff." It is gothic to the extreme, which you would think would be garish, but isn't. Looking at it from the outside, both the basilica and the baptistry, you didn't expect much from the inside. It was a pleasant surprise.
