The church of the Dominicans was built in the middle of the 17th century and was enlarged at the beginning of the 18th century. A college was added which was then transformed into a school. In 1886 the convent and the presbytery were destroyed by fire. At present it is fairly plain but inside you can see beautiful wood carving : the pews, the altar, the high altar and the confessionals.
