Small chapel with beautiful marble statues and history. The Vailed Chirst was the most impressive. No need for audio phones. Lots of written history in English. Line was fairly short. We walked but you will need a good GPS system to find it!

This is a very inexpensive self guided tour to take (around 7 Euros). The marble work inside the chapel is breath taking.

No pictures inside and an higher-than-average entrance fee. However, it is absolutely worth it if you love sculptures. The audioguide gives a lot of information and is a must if you really want to understand everything. If you are it interested in the anatomical models,...More

This is small Museo but it contains some amazing marble statues. I'm not an art or history buff but was amazed at the talent needed to create these works.

It can take 30 minutes, it also depends on how long you want to make it, because each piece after you listen to the review you also would like to give it another chance to check it!!!!
