Really hoped to see the bone chapel but the church was locked. Had to make do with photos of the outside.

A beautiful old church which is accessed through a very interesting museum. Everything in here is gold but because the church is so dark, it is hard to get the full effect.

This Church seems to stay closed except for Masses. In fact it is gated and locked in my experience. We attended 10am Mass there, or least we attempted to. Within minutes of arriving I felt that the Church was suffocatingly warm. I left to get...More

paid a visit to this church. It also contains a small museum. The ceiling was being restored when we were there, but it was still worth the visit. €3 fee to enter, but discovered it was free on Wednesdays.

I've given this one star because I went 3 times at different times of day and it was never open. Rather disappointed as it was top of my list to see.
