During the 1000 years thereafter it has been renovated. One renovation that was partially accomplished was the introduction of massive rococo embellishments...More

In the first part of the church the style is Gotic Chiaramont; The presbytery is Baroque and Renaissance style is expressed onthe façade of the bell tower. Is a different monument, but very interesting.

Lovely architecture and baroque section but mostly being renovated and the staff were not at all helpful. We decided not to pay the extra to see the tower cos it didn't look that exciting.
