This is a must see. The beauty is beyond words. There is no charge to enter. You better bring a camera you will want to take some pictures.

This is a surprising church..externally it appears very Greek in style. Inside the art and architecture are amazing. For just a donation it is as good as most cathedrals you will see in italy
