You can also get a view of the church, which otherwise is only open once daily for mass, but they don't take you into the church itself, just the choir.

We came here on a suggestion to see the chapel, but also very much enjoyed the architecture and the view looking at the Snow capped mountains far away.
By visiting this site during the day and again in the evening, you will get a different experience.

The top level has a good place for cheese and wine but gives a view of all the mountains and good for taking photos.
Views of the volcanos from the top make great pictures.
