St. Peter's is more a church than museum. It does have a stunning doorway and windows that have survived more than a few wars. Beautiful courtyard and behind the church are many restaurants and cafes to choose from.

Very ornate exterior - this church hidden the side streets hides a beautiful ornate interior complete with artworks and well maintained walls windows and altar. Had a much warmer more welcoming feel than others we've seen. Quite cosy and intimate
