The inside of the church is beautifully decorated with gold plated wood, sculptures are geniously done

It was very interesting to see all the gold that was applied to this once simple gothic church
when the styles in fashion changed to baroque. We didn't have time to see the museum but
still felt it was worthwhile and unique to see the church.

An interesting complex, complete with a small religious artifacts museum, and large catacombs. Not much in the line of English information, but our Rick Steves book gave us what we needed.

Although at one time there was apparently separate ticketing you must now buy a single ticket for the museum, catacombs and former church. The museum is quite small, the catacombs quite boring, and the church has seen better days - the gilt is quite tarnished and the carving at places rotted out.

This church is really amazing. The extreme rococo-baroque interior is unique. Unfortunately the tickets are expensive and the rest of the visit is totally not worth (museum and catacombs).
