  • Old sanctuary build on 3 consecutive enclosed areas/terraces, with the old church in the middle. Not all well kept, you can find rooms to rent with nice views, a small museum, the old and the new...  more »
  • Wow, this place is amaizing. Visiting the churches is something and going up the mountain, walking inside the forest is brilliant way to spend the day out with family. Water so cold and we enjoyed walking up the rocks. Definitely recommend this place to everyone to visit. I will go there again.
  • Beautiful and amazing place for having a trip with your family and friends. However it's hard to reach it with public transportation, better to go there by car. Since it's cold in winter it's better to go there when it's warm and sunny. The view is amazing, the church itself isn't open all the time, during religious events (especially on Sundays it's not open to public to visit).
