This is an imposing building that encompasses older Roman remains with sarcophagi and old pictures. In the crypt is a shrine to St Andrew one of the apostles which is very elaborate. The church itself is also ornate and bears testimony to a time when the gospel had to be expressed in pictures and visual images as many people could not read.
For those that cannot climb STEEP stairs, there IS a ramp beyond building on left, BUT just as steep. Folks with walkers were REALLY exerting themselves to ascend ramp, so if it applies, be aware. Plan ahead if feeble & your goal is to enter church. Would even be tough for the 'wheelchair pusher' to get someone up there. That aside, it's very nice
A must see place to visit. It is stunning such history. Beautiful artefacts it's €3.00 to visit well worth the money. Staff on hand to explain and answer any questions you may have. They have great knowledge and are keen to share it with you. Need to remember this is a church and you should respect it as such. There is a dress code which you need to respect. Photographs can be taken in some areas but flashes can't be used.
Amazing historic site with ample reading to help create an understanding of the church importance. Be sure to go inside for $3€ and get the brochure. The pictures cannot do it justice and just be seen in person to appreciate.
Amazing journey into the heart of history, art and faith. Centuries of art, wars, pilgrimages and miracles can be found on their walls and relics. Worth every sencond you spend inside this centre of cultural heritage.
