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.
