Once you get round the fact that this is hewn from solid rock by hand you realise what you are looking at is an astonishing feat. No laser levels, no jack hammers. Just a large number of monks chipping away at the rock for a hundred yesr and you have an astonishing achievment. It beggars belief what the complete church must have looked like, but wars and erosion have taken their toll. The entrance fee is well worth paying.
