Marvellously fluid stonework outside. Absolutely gorgeous, As usual, the .interior is much plainer, but well worth a visit more »
Very very lovely old church probably in the neighborhood of three hundred years old. If you're Catholic this it should be on your list of places to see. They actually had a mass going when we look into the place and I was disappointed because they were using speakers and amplifiers really took away from the ambience of the place. There was some sort of Monument to a cardinal or some hierarchy in the church and was a little odd for my taste. Again this is a recommended spot to visit
The building's exterior is covered with pink stone and are very worked both covers and towers, unlike the interior of sober neoclassical and it's very and very elegant
