  • It is interesting to know the historical relevance but sadly very little remains. Worth a quick look if you are passing. Don’t make a special trip  more »
  • This place is interesting to visit while walking along the promenade. Small area, free admission. It's very hot at noon!!!

  • One of the oldest Christian churches ever built! Many people thought this was an old mosque, but archeologists have now concluded that this is the remains of one of the oldest purpose-built churches in the world. The foundations date back to the late 3rd or early 4th century, and the church was probably in use for about a century before an earthquake devastated the region. Layers of sand have helped preserve the walls, some of which are more than two meters high.
  • A few, very basic, information boards and some ruins. It's really not very impressive or informative and takes about 10minutes to walk around...
