Beautiful church to visit, with the entry fee you get an audio tour (English) which was very well done and informative and access to the bell tower, which was a highlight for me!! Beautiful views over the old town and the most INCREDIBLE spiral staircase!!!

The visit was made better with the assistance of an audio guide. Gives great details. The altar is stunning! Well worth the climb up the bell tower too. Provides fabulous views over the city.
