    Interesting place with an open entry to the church but couldn’t get to see much else as it was closed up. Around here some interesting farmer shops where I was able to buy some delicacies

    The cloisters are not large but quite pretty. It is set in a very pretty little town. You can get an audio guide or loaned a booklet that is in English.
