Opposite the church square in a car park, this site is easily missed but it should be visited. Not a huge amount to wander around but some interesting ruins of a basilica with mosaics and heaps of pottery shards on the ground. We loved the quietness and the atmosphere here as we looked around on our own.

I agree with others - this is a hidden and unexpected gem. No crowds but interesting ruins and mosaics. Frankly more worthwhile than the Tombs of the Kings!

firstly this is not one of the big sites and there is not a great deal here. However, what is here is worth its weight. To start with the man at the entrance is very friendly and accommodating. To follow the price is reasonable at 2.50 euros each for adults - the money is needed. The site may not be... More

Went in march when the whole ruin site was covered with wild flowers lovely to stroll around good views and some floor mosaics you can visit the church outside the site and do not miss the tombs carved into the rock opposite the church we nearly did.

Whilst staying at Coral Bay my friend and I went by the local bus to Agios Georgios which takes approx. 30 minutes. We visited the modern church there and then walked around the small local area. We noticed a small "shack" with a Museum sign over the door, half expecting it to be a local "gift" shop we wandered in... More

Pretty location, ruins and mosaics worth a walk round. Good value at €2.50 entry. Some large lizards and pheasant like birds a bonus.

Ignore the comments about being remote or there not being lots to see if you are interested in getting right up close to historical ruins without the crowds. The cheap entrance fee (€2.50) and friendly guard are enough to make this site worth the visit as you can clamber in and around the ruins which include several religious buildings; an... More

The church is pretty but otherwise not worth visiting. There is little else to see here - in fact several restaurants just seemed to have been abandoned. The harbour is dirty and unattractive.

What is interesting about this site is the condition of the exhibits. They were exposed during excavations started in 1952 and have remained exposed since those days. The mosaics are in very good condition considering. It is a worthwhile visit followed by visiting St Georges chapel. It is also possible to visit the graves on the cliffs just a few... More

We had our Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony at Agios Georgios and it was an incredibly beautiful location with plenty of opportunities for fantastic wedding photos with a stunning background. The church held our 30 guests perfectly.
