I liked the literal translation of the broken pediment style at the E end! The chancel looked longer than the nave in the cruciform church. A key could be obtained from the Tourist Information office, so we hot footed it back there, but sadly it closed at 2pm so we were unable to gain access to the interior, we’ll have to get there earlier next time. It is also open on Saturdays during the summer according to the information sheet.
