Not much to say really. Reasonable admission price. Interesting history and good place to take some photos.

Quiet haven oozing history hidden just behind Debenhams off the harbour! Walkways allow you to get up close to mosaics/ancient pillars/columns - informative panels and historic church still used - and it's free!
The site is open to anyone to wander in free of charge. Well made walkways give access to the Byzantine mosaics and foundations and to St Paul,s Pillar.

Outside the church there are raised walkways so that the ruins and mosaics can be... More
