We have visited here several times when coming to Petra. This year was made more special as we have lost a few friends and wanted to light candles. The climb was difficult in places but the views are Amazing. I would advise people to do this early morning before it gets too hot and take water with you.

The views of Petra are great and the church is very grand. No dislikes apart from needing a bit more puff at the top.

The church on the rock is a lovely place. It's just a bit of a problem to get to as it is on top of the volcanic plug at the centre of the village of Petra on Lesvos. So, if you are keen to go, go early in the morning as it's too hot later in the day and treacherous... More

This church is a must see if you are in the area. Aside from the 114 steep steps with a handrail, it is a beautiful church with an impressive view of the surrounding area. When you first enter the gate on top, there is a small faucet you can drink from or use to splash water on your face. TIP:... More

The journey up to the church takes you up some really stunning 'alley ways', and when you get to the bottom of the rock that the church sits on, the many steps up to this church are well worth it as the inside of the church is absolutely stunning. Also, the views from the church, which overlooks Petra are well... More
