Description

If you happen to visit the , pay attention to the choir handrail behind the altar. You will see a large, motionless lizard. Well, the lizard that died years and years ago, because of the dust that settled on its body, has become one with the handrail, practically turning into a piece of wood. Even after restoration, the lizard was not removed because it is now a symbol of the church.
