Next to the Saint Climent of Ohrid church, this site has lots of significance in the history of Macedonia. It is interesting but currently surrounded by construction and buildings as the land is being excavated and built upon. The catacombs and burials are worth taking...More

The history, the incredible details. Absolutely worth walking around the area. Pop in to the local pub, walk up and see the arena and walk into the church. Gorgeous.
