Don't miss this. For a small entrance fee you get to go into the church, caves underneath, city walls and a small museum. It's in an idyllic setting with a nice area outside where you can sit and watch the world go by, but make...More

Hard to believe they charge a fee to get inside a Church with very little to see inside. The main feature of the Church is that it is part and parcel of the wall defending the city. You can admire that fact without entering the...More
