If you have the pass it is OK but, if not, you are not allowed to visit the church without forking out for the entry price to crypt.

You enter the ruins to the far right of the church and it is part of the multiple site ticket. The church is very pretty also - check out the ruins below the altar and then check out the altar from above. Very interesting.

The porch is an add-on, the real church is behind the romanesque doorways and is absolutely beautiful and peaceful inside. The crypt is interesting with some very well-preserved or well-renovated wall paintings. We were fortunate enough to be here during Semana Santa so we could...More

As others have said, church is not open except during services, although a sign said a chapel was open in the evening. Empty crypts. No saint here.

I had hoped we could visit inside the church but it wasn't possible at the time of our visit. The crypts beneath the church were impressive and worth checking out. It's close enough to the centre of the old town.
