The Tomb of St Dominic is the highlight - it is a must see. The Church is in a peaceful square away from the main bustle of the city. Worth seeing - and only a few minutes walk from the centre.

Old and majestic, this church / basilica is renowned for having inside the tomb of Saint Dominic (the creator of the Dominicans order). Also his tomb is decorated with wonderful statues, out of which 4 were sculpted by Michelangelo.
