We went into this Gothic church after visiting its magnificent painted Majolica cloister. The interior proved to be in excellent condition, though it has been around since the 14th century and received a Baroque makeover in the 17th century. That's because a 1943 aerial bombing...More

There is a beauty pleasure in the noisy town. The museum was closed but it was very good choice. I loved the colours and decorations.

This monastery/church has a beautiful open-air area with benches of majolica tiles and is a wonderful spot to sit and have a snack. There's a small museum and archaeological ruins and it doesn't feel too strenuous. There's a beautiful nativity scene just magnificent to behold.
