It doesn’t look like a long hike until you get started. The footpath is uneven and rocky. The hike can be difficult for some, but if you can make it, it’s worth the hike. I only went to the church and didn’t go further. The...More

Great hike up, the church is half way to the top. Charming, small, and with fantastic views! We enjoyed the stop and bought some religious relics from a small vendor there. There were many hikers on the trail, it's steep with steps, and a great...More

Really nice to stop in and see this little sanctuary. Very peaceful. Don’t ne put off by trinkets for sale outside, there is no one hawking them. Man on the way into the shrine is very pleasant.

The ceiling is a depiction of the sky with stars, not very usual for churches in the region, interesting to see, no fee is charged, it is also a tomb of an aristocratic family.

This church, from the 15th century, requires quite a climb, halfway up a very steep hillside behind the old city. Not sure it's worth the climb unless you're just looking for a challenging hike.

You do not need guides, with an English map you can buy on the lulasque in the old town, you can get to know a lot of it. If you need a lot of details from history, then ask the info desk at the city's old town about the... More
