  • I am not evaluating this church. I am evaluating the entire village and it is great. One of the nicest places I have seen. The atmosphere on the streets is great. They managed to keep the kitsch shops bearable. Must see in my opinion.
  • A very nice part of Bulgaria with plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. Easily accessible by boat trip, bus or road train from sunny beach. And if you're feeling energetic you can walk there.
  • This one of around 12 churches in different states of decay all very interesting but watch out for the tourist traps of small shops, there were a bit to many for my liking. Still the ruins are an interesting walk and mostly accessible .
  • Fascinating ruins of Chappell. Once it was part of bishop house. No roofs are preserved, but parts of large tall walls still remain.
  • This place shows how they preached Christianity years ago and what work went into building these churches the stone work is amazing. But they have commercialised the island nothing but shops bar's ice cream palours clothing shop. Sham
