Abbey Church

The building, rebuilt in the early 18C, except for the south tower (16C), has a fairly severe façade, making the interior more interesting for its Baroque decoration. The nave, with its vault covered in frescos, is flanked by four chapels decorated with marble and gilding, while the choir, closed off by a finely decorated gate, contains some pretty stalls.
