Happy we stopped here to see the site. The building is made with coral. It is very old, survived a volcano and still stands! They have some history posted at the entrance. It was free to enter you just have to sign in.

It is along the national road so it is worth a quick stop over. We saw 3 ruins. The first was the church. At the back is the bell tower and monastery (?). Have your tour guide tell you the history of the place.
