It is beautiful to sit in the piazza and gaze at the facade. Preferably eating ice cream from the gelateria on the corner. Inside, the church is equally fascinating. We didn't go up the 510 steps of the tower but there are apparently great views...More

An imposing cathedral, a medieval market discrete, in a quiet town like soul of the Virgin Mary.A very tall belfry with a unique medieval clock

Light a candle, sit and relax in quiet contemplation and say a prayer. Let peace wash over you as you marvel at stained glass windows.
