“The church of the hundred doors.”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The church of a hundred doors. Beautiful and even more beautiful courtyard plus the bells in the trees. Well worth a visit.

“Up you should go!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Of course you are going to go if you are there. It's right on the main square of the town and it's free. It's one of the oldest churches in Christendom. But here's a weird tip: exit the church and go left. There's a set of stairs leading to a doorway. This is the upstairs that my son found, and which no one else seemed to notice that day. Lovely remnants of ancient frescos, and you can look down on all the hidden rooms and alcoves. We found the 100th door up there...were we supposed to? LOL.

“A little oasis”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Not being a religious person but I love architecture particularly ancient. This place is very unusual and an oasis in a holiday mecca. To the side and rear of the buildings is a "pine wood" which offers shelter from the burning hot sun and if you walk through it in the later part of the day, the smell is wonderful! They could do with a few more seats through the length of the wood as when I tried to find somewhere to sit the bench I would have chosen was taken up by a "wanderer" sleeping full length on it. Try the "box of chocolate choc ices" you can buy from the little supermarket next door to the florists at the end of the "wood" . Gorgeous!!
