Beautiful church with great views of the bell tower. Right along the street from lots of bars and restaurants
We liked the new and fresly painted look of this church. All artfull paintings as well as the paint on the walls seem to have been made yesterday. This gives a refreshing look to the chiesa to the contrary of many churches in Italy.
