We visited here during our walk around this not to be missed beautiful town. The church was amazing and the altar was truly magnificent. The belltower offers great views of the surrounding area. Not to be missed.

This small church - up from the open plaza and down from the castle walls - is beautifully ornate and most certainly worth a visit.

This little gem is classified as a National Monument. Located in the heart of this beautiful town it is definitely worth a visit to see the 17 century ecclesiastical architecture - lovely hand painted glazed tiles
