  • We came to this church after a nice climb on foot. But the effort was rewarded by surprise to find a church so beautiful and special. We met in the Church, a volunteer guide, can't remember his name, graduating in archaeology, who told us about the history of the Church and he described in a competent manner and clarifies the meaning of the remains of Greek temple.

  • Bella is a very old one this small church there one can visit in a few minutes. Through the walkway on the glass floor you can see the path is the old layout is smaller Church below the staircase and the old access. Recommended!

  • If you pass by the Church, your position in Paris Council to stop by, especially if you have been in the Cathedral, are really close. Otherwise it should go. Carina.

  • A place full of history and humanity. I chose this church to celebrate my wedding because it is warm, rich in history and in a context that speaks of life lived. The Unbearable Lightness of old town that I have defended and documented. I love this site because it gives me spiritual peace and I found something I had lost some time ago. 🙏 PS, the guides are very prepared and patients

  • A beautiful medieval church, which was built on the remains of an ancient Greek temple and so on the one hand includes remnants of medieval frescoes and paintings on the ceiling beams, but also insight into the Greek Foundation allows. Even if Santa Maria Dei Greci is a little off of the shot, it is absolutely worth a visit.

  • The Greek-Byzantine rite old cathedral was built in 1200 on the remains of a former Doric Temple, by some scholars identified as the Temple of Athena Lindia and Zeus Atabyrios (mentioned by Polybius).

  • The Church is beautiful and talented volunteer who for free and passionately tells the history of the place while the employees are to the phone and chat loudly. Unlike the Church, the area where it is located as well as the streets we walk to get there from the main street, are in complete disrepair. There's dirt everywhere smell of pee, weeds, crumbling houses.
