  • Rock-hewn church containing artefacts from the stone itself, with a history/legend quite impressive. Located almost on the beach, at the foot of a fortress, to get there you must get off the steps so comfy. Not to be missed

  • The Church is characteristic and is situated on the beach. Is reached by parking on the street and down a hundred steps. Ticket costs 3 euros.
