The entry fee is really cheap and the building by itself it is more than spectacular. Very detailed, welcoming. The paintings are even huge and shows clearly a Catholic belief

Beautiful from inside. A 400-year old organ is still working. Tips: Someone said it's closed on Sunday but actually it's open, at least in the morning.

This is a big building which you have to pay for to see - and no concessions for retired! There is very little information about the paintings, relics or history and I just came to the conclusion that they just wanted to take the money...More
