I was able to go inside the Kloster but not the Church as there was a Christening Service.

The church-yard is surrounded by a Renaissance style Cloister. The walls are full of old frescoes, and on the floor are graves, some were quite recent. I was also able to see where the spring water came slowly out of the well pipe and into a font. The water is meant to help people who have arthritis and other ailments, relieving them of their suffering. I didn't try it!

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
