This church sits in the shadow of the cathedral and probably visited by few tourists. Very plain both inside and out with the exception of the alter that was carved from the same type stone as the pillars and walls. It's worth a short visit.

The church in itself remains somewhat in the shadow of the cathedral, but its main altar is just beyond words. You have to see it, it's certainly worth the 2 euro donation for accessing it.

This little church is right behind the Cathedral and is worth seeing. It has a very ornate altar. Be sure to drop in for a visit.

The main altar in this church resembles a large tapestry, and this is very unusual. The church also has some very good paintings. One of them is of San Nicolas. There were also some very good tapestries.

Do not pass this church by-easily done as it is next to the cathedral. The interior is splendid but the main alter piece is unbelievably beautiful, perhaps this is what heaven is like. An absolute must to see.

The hours are limited on this small cathedral, but if you can be there, it's really quite lovely and quiet and cool. The large facade invites you to take in each aspect of it.

Next to the great cathedral, most of the people just passing by, but it is worth visiting this church. Just go in, sit down and relax, enjoy the atmosphere and the beauty of it.

the city does not stop to give you the most fantastic churches. It is all overwhelming and you cannot stop taking photographs.
