We loved walking around the ruins and reading about the history of this church. There is no fee to wander through the ruins and take advantage of the great photo opts.

I liked to walk around this ruined church. The place was near the gate of old town and I could take good pictures in sunset.

Just inside the Gate as you enter the old city is the Cathedral of the Lady. It is a good place to start your guided tour of the city because it gives you a good sense of the many cultures that occupied this historical island.
