Truly a beautiful structure! The architecture and artwork on the inside is breathtaking, and you are surrounded by tombs and statues. Pictures are allowed but you must make a 2 euro donation, which is pretty reasonable considering it's a tourist attraction. However, you must not...More

Started by the city to their patron saint, the unfinished edifice is the result of a greedy cardinal and jealous Pope (it was intended to be larger than St. Peter's in Rome. A lot of interesting history and very beautiful frescoes inside. I found it...More
