The church is beautiful inside and out. There's a cost to enter but it's completely worth it as it's quirky inside. Look for the bones!

The views walking up to the church, the countryside around it are stunning. The church itself (lower and upper levels) is simple, almost bare, but possesses an almost overpowering (and moving) beauty. I chose to get married here...

This is a very unique church with two very different levels. Be sure to check out the grafitti from the 1600's (actually records kept by the monks). The views over the valley are spectacular from the grounds.

I may be a bit biased as this is the town my family came from, but this church and its history are quite impressive. Considering the current state of the frescos the church has a beauty very different from the many that we visited in...More
