Even if you are not a history freak you cannot help it being impressed by this wonderful building. It is a piece of history, and you should not miss to visit and take your time to view the interior.

Hi, We visited this year and I see from the plan that the Sacrament Chapel is marked number 13 and is on the left hand side entering from Adam's Portal just before The Chapel of the Nail. Hope this helps.
