Lonely Planet review

The earliest parts of this church date from the 11th century; three of the five choir chapels were added in the 15th century, with the six chapels along the northern wall of the nave added in the 16th century. The only original frescoes are the faint 12th- or 13th-century works that adorn the U-shaped dome above the choir. Every evening from 21 June to the third weekend in September, spectacular colours are cinematically projected onto the west facade of this church.
