  • Interesting history, and worth a short visit while at the palace. It was theEmperor’s tomb, then taken over by the church and his remains were evicted!  more »
  • A church with a rich history that goes back to the Roman period. Interesting interior with a round design and a simpler church design. Main highlight is of course the bell tower.
  • Some nice history here but also a great place to get out of the sunshine if it becomes a little too hot.
