This old monastery has it all. It is now a wonderful museum with the most beautifully tiled cloisters and an archeological site dating to Roman times. The museum is essentially ecclesiastic and perhaps less interesting. Worth it all to spend time in those cloisters but...More

Most people will come here to see the hand painted Majolica ceramic formal gardens in the courtyard and this is a star attraction. An area of calm away from busier streets featuring citrus trees. It is worth exploring what else is on offer. A museum...More

Large Norman style churches are rare in these parts because during the 16th and 17th centuries, the existing churches were redecorated in baroque style. Baroque decoration and architecture involves cladding walls in multicoloured marble, installing statues in white marble, reliefs of cherubs, paintings and ornaments....More

Really nice building and garden with all these mosaiqes. Also small museum, some old roman parts and shop with all souvenires possible. Before going check the opening hours.

So much to see - lovely frescoes all around, immaculate tiled columns, a great museum of artifacts. But be warned, do not sit on the tiles, or even put your belongings down on them! Well, you can understand why!
