We stopped by mid week around 12.30pm and were treated to someone playing on the organ - a calming atmosphere complemented by a clean, crisp white, internal decoration.

My cousin and I stumbled upon this by accident but it was one of the highlights of our trip. There is an absolutely beautiful courtyard well worth a quiet stroll around.

So unlike anything from the same period in Southern Europe. The church and the cloisters and a wonderful rose garden. Look out for the frescoed ceilings.

I've only been inside once, for a short time, but it's a really beautiful and bright church with interesting history. It's also a great place to just sit down and relax from all the outside noise.
