  • Located on the central square and the large bell tower is visible from almost everywhere. Its current appearance is dated from 1616 (after the reconstruction of an older church).  more »
  • Just a very short walk from where you take the boat to Our Lady of the Rock is another wonderful old church with great art, etc. Worth a 20 min walk through either before or after your boat tour.  more »

  • Terrifying climb with rewarding view at top of the tower. If they are charging €1 for entry, maybe some of that should be spent on safety...
  • Stunning, mind-blowing view from top of the church and entrance fee is only 1 Euro.
