Interiorly with unremarkable paintings. Climbing in the elevator is a heist. Slow, queues and infrequent.
Uma vista fantástica sobre a cidade Subida á torre de tirar respiração mas com uma vista maravilhosa Monumento magnífico sem dúvida more »A fantastic view over the city rising to the breathtaking tower but with a wonderful view magnificent monument undoubtedly
Fantastic church with stunning views of the city! If you can walk, do it! Otherwise go by the yellow teleferic tram or by car. Worth it for many reasons to do climb the hill! Church is massive with awesome glass paints.
Beautiful place with great views on the area. I would recommend going to the top of the tower if you can. There's a garden where you can spend some time,have a little picnic 🙂
