It was beautiful, but when I visited it there was a local school event and I could only see the cathedral very quickly/ It will be closed on December 25, 29, 30 and 31 and January 1, 2 and 5 as well as every Sunday.

After the crowds of the cathedral, the heat and noise of the streets, it's worth visiting this quiet, unspoiled little church. Considerably older than the Cathedral, it cannot compete with the former's soaring vaults and flying buttesses but it's silence speaks volumes. St Francis may...More

An oasis of calm in a sometimes-bustling city. Interesting part of the history of the city. Entrance 5 euros. Printed English language guide card available on free loan.

This is a little off the beaten track, set back in a less touristy part of the old city, but is well worth the effort of finding it. It has a highly decorated interior, lots of interesting and beautifully ornate side chapels - one dedicated...More

I am sorry I cannot answer the question. My visit was for a wedding which started around six pm. I am sure your hotel concierge will be able to tell you or some of the people at the Church. Good luck
