  • Beautiful and historic basilica. The woodwork on the choir is some of the most intricate I have ever seen. Several late medieval and early Renaissance artworks, plus a working mechanism of a tower...

  • It Very nice place and full of interested history. The entrance fee is 3 Euro and for visiting internal and go to the too have to pay another 7 euro. But it's very good experience. Recommend to go on the morning or last afternoon.
  • This was the first place I visited with my school. The story of apostle Francis to which this church was dedicated was a beautiful story to learn of, the great sculptures that were there, the story and where it all centered. I loved the art and the story that each art tells.
