The cloister is nice but I find the entry cost disproportionate - I preferred to pay a bit more to enter during the morning's Concerto Piccolo (20 minutes' organ concert) to enjoy a full experience. We also came back for the evening 1 hour's concert...More

No. They just appreciate your attendance. Obviously short shorts would be seen as inappropriate but other than that, no dress code
