  • Very pleasant church both to visit and to just observe. The spirit of union of the old and the new did not left me during the whole time I spent near this place. This is THE Must-See kind of a place for history and archeology enthusiast.
  • It’s very famous and also it’s history is very interesting which combines the Greek and Roman architect styles, it’s built BC and lasts till AD. It’s not very fancy and “wow” inside. The silver statue only goes out showing the public twice a year and actually no chance u will see it any other days of the year. There’s a miniature and video tho. Entrance fee 2€.
