  • One of a kind art treasure. Countless details. Educate yourself about it before you go and you will get much more from the time controlled experience. Do buy tickets on line ahead. Time slots do fill up. No ticket, no visit.
  • Very unique place with inner weather control. So you need to reserve ticket beforehand and be there on time. Small lbout 25 meter per 7 Chapel with marvellous paintings.
