A truly stunning church in a city full of stunning churches. Located just south of the main train station, SM Novella is a marvel in green and white striped marble. The church itself is light and airy, the embodiment of Italian Renaissance architecture.
But the true gem is the Green Cloister next door. You have to pay a little extra to enter it but it's worth it. When I was there, I had the cloister all to myself which was so spiritual.
