We always visit churches when we travel and this was a must see. They had a docent that was very knowledgeable about the ruins and you could go into the basement to see musiac floors.

Very pretty little church with a huge amount of history. Worth a visit if you have a day of random exploring to do.

A friendly docent invited us to tour the relatively recent excavations beneath the current floor of the church that exposed evidence of earlier sites of worship on the same site through the millennia.

It is a church near the port, very plain inside, recently reastaured. It has excellent acoustics and in the Autumn there are often concerts
