Very well preserved fragment of sacred art of the Roman Catholic Church, during your visit, remember that this is still a fully functioning temple. Before the planned visit check if there us any planned organ concert - would be a great experience to attend!

The Fara Church is famous for its strinking interior and for the bridght-red exterior that can't be missed. The interior is nicely decorated with marble and bright frescoes in the most exquisite Baroque style that can make anyone wonder about its beauty.

A very beautiful church, we went there in February and the church was really cold. Actually colder inside the church than outside

Incredible, wonderful, amazing - I love these church! Although Sistine Chapel is in renaissance style I can see a lot of similarities to baroque "Fara" church. First of all this is beautiful church so you can participate in the mass, you can also make a tour or listen to the organ concert. Opening hours - from 6am to 7.30pm. It's... More

Just stumbled into this place (followed someone in). Wow, incredible, wonderful, amazing. Never seen such amazing ceiling art and marble craftsmanship, and to think there was no scaffolding involved, awe inspiring.

The interior of this church is very nice, very loaded on decoration baroque style but really nice...although a bit dark. I was very disappointing to learn that the marble columns are not real marble and that very few of "gold" moldings were not made of gold but normal paint; but even knowing that, it is a very impressive decoration they...

The parish church of St Stanislaus or the Lesser Basilica of St Stanislaus as it is now known is impressive. The beautiful facade with its vibrant colour alone is worth a visit. Built as a Jesuit Temple in the 17th century it is home to a 16th century crucifix and a precious copy of the painting of the Mother of... More
