I stepped inside on a whim, not prepared for anything special and *man* was it worth it. Absolutely beautiful interior, extravagant but cozy at the same time. Definitely stop by to soak it all in.

This small church holds the Shroud of Turin, it should not be missed and is fabulous to sit inside and look up.

it's a nice example of baroque churches. Nothing special, but definitely a must see. The famous Shroud is held in a special wooden box behind a glass wall, but it is still touching to stand there.

This is an incredible example of Baroque architecture, bedecked with frills and furbelows. Even if it is not your style, you must visit. Once inside the very unassuming (even plain) exterior, your jaws will drop. The entire thing is worth it when you look up...More
