Huge building in the center of town. Lovely architecture and modest main chapel make for a pretty sight. We stopped during a road trip to have a look and some coffee at one of the cafes nearby.

An impressive building visible from far away. Close up it's even better. The architecture is fantastic - as is the history of the place! The whole family enjoyed the visit and found it as no surprise that it's on the UNESCO list.
