Además de tener la reliquia (el cráneo ) de María Magdalena se supone, es una basílica digna de ver por su arquitectura y tamaño , ubicada en una plaza muy mona more »In addition to having the relic (the skull) of Mary Magdalene is supposed, it is a basilica worthy of seeing for its architecture and size, located in a very cute square
This is a great church to see, with lots of stories and history. We had the luck to benefit from the night guided tour organised by the local Tourism Office. This is a fantastic way of discovering the church with a new prism.
Beautiful cathedral. Must visit. Not so much Marie Magdalena churches in the world. This one probably the biggest. Very good for better Christianity understanding.
