The Church is beautiful, but he Custody is worth the visit. It's a shame they don't allow to take pictures, but seeing it is an excellent experience.

This place is amazing. Extremely rich history and beautiful artifacts. The main cathedral has 12 chapels within it. I would STRONGLY recommend either a guided tour or an audio tour (I usually don't go for guided tours but I would say this almost requires it)....More

You can easily visit this church in an hour and it is worth the time. We went with a guide which allowed us to learn about the real history of the church and important features that we would have missed.
