I re-visited this beautiful church which dates from the 3rd Century B.C. The wonderful yellow stone seems to glow in the sunshine, while inside the church is cool and decorated with many ancient, religious icons complete with gold leaf.

Built in the 3rd Century BC but looking remarkably well preserved.

This huge old Olive tree now needs some support to maintain its erect stance!
