The church stands in a small piazzo, a stone's throw from the Old Harbour. It is unusually elevated and is accessed up a fairly steep flight of stairs. Admittedly, there are some rather tired-looking frescoes on the façade, but nothing can prepare the visitor for...More

A very interesting, small, local church, with impressive frescoes on the outside, and a pleasant atmosphere inside.
