From the outside you would never guess that there is so much beauty inside this building. It was good to see active restoration efforts too. I really liked this place.

this is an active retirement home for priests, but you can visit. the architecture, patio and chapel are well worth the visit. the chapel is very ornate, containing painting and much gilding work. you are allowed to take pictures. the courtyard contains several fountain sculptures.
