You can easily visit this church in an hour and it is worth the time. We went with a guide which allowed us to learn about the real history of the church and important features that we would have missed.

My colleague reviewers were right, most of the people just visit the main cathedrale. This church and convent is even as impressive with its unique setup and art pieces. There are much less people and you can watch everything in quiet.

This church is in the center of everything so it would be hard for you not to see this church. It has so many priceless treasures you really should see this. Give it a good half hour just to walk through it.

Once you entered in the Convent of Mercy, you will be surprised by the hidden beauty that is there. A central courtyard, beautifully sculpted in stone with wooden carvings ceilings leave the tourists astonished. You must walk it all and especially admire the church choir...More
