This church is just off Old Square and free to enter. Inside the baroque style is everywhere and the ceilings are beautifully painted with frescos. Seems smaller inside than it appears from the outside and we were only in there 10 minutes but definitely worth...More

This church is a bit trickier to find, but it's worth it at least to have a quick look around. The interior is gorgeous and seeing the mummified forearm is the cherry on top. As you're leaving the main hall, look up to your left...More
