St. Peter's is more a church than museum. It does have a stunning doorway and windows that have survived more than a few wars. Beautiful courtyard and behind the church are many restaurants and cafes to choose from.

Very ornate exterior - this church hidden the side streets hides a beautiful ornate interior complete with artworks and well maintained walls windows and altar. Had a much warmer more welcoming feel than others we've seen. Quite cosy and intimate

I went in the church today. It has old wooden carved doors that can be seen from the outside when the church is open. The inside of the church has good decorations, along with some paintings and sculptures. There is no fee to enter.

The exterior promises much but the interior is rather plain and not of any particular merit. Don't miss the doors however.
