  • It must be one of the most elegant Franciscan churches I've ever met. Really very beautiful, elegant with beautiful works and a beautiful octopus, plus a beautiful altar. For lack of time we were not able to visit the museum, another slope.

  • Its interior is magnificent, its relics and its octopus are admirabls as well as the frescoes that it has in its cupula. It would be very important to start a restoration so as not to lose it. There are many areas of your cupula and troubled walls
