When you see something on Unesco World heritage list, you know is a must see. But you cannot always expect such beauty! The unfinished chapel is particularly unique!

Beautiful built church with spectacular details. Please pay the additional €6 to visit the other side of the closed chapel to see closed wing session for some amazing artwork. There is also a tourist information center at the rear end of the church.

Went as part of a tour. I'm not sure if it was the time of year but it wasnt busy at all...which was amazing. I got so many great shots and it's really big to walk around. You need about 45 minutes

One of the most beautiful monasteries from the outside, with its medieval design and huge size. However, once inside, you will have to pay to visit the important parts of this church, which is a bit disapointing.

This was definitely an experience to remember. Especially because it is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Such beautiful architecture and just so much to learn and marvel at! If you are a religious person (or are willing to hear), I would highly recommend getting...More
