No need to go into the church to view the ancient ruins outside, each area has an interpretation board. There is a 'modest' dress code for entering the church e.g. no shorts, swimwear, short skirts etc.

A multi-period ecclesiastical complex which is under-appreciated by the officials. The information panels fail to deliver significant information which, unless you're an archaeologist like myself, unfortunately will continue to ignore. It's worth a visit but arrange for a guided tour.

A truly beautiful little church, completely surrounded by the remains of churches dating back to the 4th century. We were made most welcome by the largely expat congregation when we came for a Sunday morning communion service. We came back later in the week very...More
