Just 2eur to enter, but that's about right given how small and limited it is to visit. There is a brief explanation in English and an art installation inside which adds to the ambience. An unusual site to visit and interesting to discover the history...More

This was an interesting place. It has a history as a place of worship, a bomb shelter, and an internment site. There were several interesting stone altars and bits of ancient frescos. Not sure I understand the purpose of the string spider webs. It was...More

A nice and different visit, particularly in the heat of the day. The crypt (charge 2 Europs from memory) is damp and slighly dark, various areas including niches and small tunnels. Used as a bunker during conflict.

Dating from the 7th century BC this crypt has been a place of worship, a roman water system, a church, an air raid shelter. Not somewhere you would first think of going. On a hot day somewhere to spend half an hour.

It took me a little bit to find the exact entrance to this church crypt, but once I got there, it did not really take too long to visit, as it really is not a big place. It was included in my combined ticket and...More

This is a very very old crypt, completely different to the one in the Cathedral. It is more like a cave with a few dark passages that you can walk down but they lead nowhere. It is quite damp and eerie, very historic. The ceiling...More
