The carving of the high alter so delicate and to have survived is a miracle. The virgin feeding the baby Jesus so warm and loving. The virgin on her own, could be by one of the old masters of the Renaissance just so evocative.

Splendid altar - a true masterpiece. Not open all day, so you need to check the hours or visit in the mess hours.
