Really beautiful church and definitely my favourite in the town. Admission was super cheap, maybe €3. You can go up to the tower too for stunning panoramic views over the town.

Loved this church, but pay to enter as all the sites in this town. Worth a visit, not expensive. Lots of history here.

Paid to enter, then asked for more to illuminate the interior! But the altar and rherodos were magnificent. Smaller than I had expected, but nonetheless, worth the visit.
