We weren't sure that we wanted to see this but it was one of the highlight of our trip. Spooky but we loved it. We were the only ones there. In the church next door / above they had a service with beautiful singing which...More

An interesting crypt that was built then expanded over the last 2.5 thousand years. We were lucky to meet someone who explained some of the less obvious features, but even without a guide, it makes for an interesting visit. It was free, but hours are...More
