Old church in town that is active. People were saying rosary when we came in so we didn’t stay long. Old historic building and interior. Church bell rings every hour and on the half hour as well.

Like most of the nearby churches, this church is cute and worth a look if you're nearby, but not a must-see. We didn't get the opportunity to go inside.

This small church is situated in a beautiful location perched on a square overlooking the quaint harbour. It does not have frescoes and artworks like many other Italian churches, but is worth a quick visit.

This old church is right on the harbor and is worth the time to walk through. You can't miss it as it dominates the small square. Many people were on the rocks and swimming in the water outside. If you venture out on the rocks,...More
