It is really a beautiful and special little chapel of the Knights Templar. Unfortunately it was not open when we were there, but this is an important and historic site for the Knights.

Not much to be seen from the outside. Inside it is completely covered with colorful frescoes from the 13th century. Well worth a visit.

There must be an open time, but we missed it. While it has an impressive history, it's a small building, which makes it a bit underwhelming from the outside. However, it adds to the area coming from the arsenal. From that side, look into the...More
