Tucked away at the end of a small alley we happened to stumble upon this tiny square with its small church and beautiful statue of St Francis of Assisi. Such a quiet contrast only a few minutes away from the cacophony of the shopping area!

We had a little trouble finding this beautiful little church. We knew it was right across the street from the Cathedral but, didn't know you had go in between shops and through a little archway to get to it. There is a wonderful little courtyard...More

This small church, accessed via an alley between shops, was a gem. Though I am not a church goer I found the appointments and decor, the altar and the art, to be of interest. It takes only a brief visit to get the flavor of...More

This has to be one of the prettiest churches I've ever been inside. It's not very big and we stumbled across it but the alter is absolutely beautiful.

This out-of-the-way church is located off a main street in the old town with a lovely courtyard before the entrance. The interior is bright and airy and well worth a short visit. Note: there is a sign on the wall of the street indicating the...More

Set in the central court this little church is well worth a look, it is beautiful on the inside. It is best to have a look in at the quieter times as it gets very busy.
