Second visit here and still stand in amazement by the ruins and their history. Have a wander round and take some stunning photos against the clear blue sky - a must see for those interested in this kind of thing.

Little, sadly, remains of St George's, but what is there is worth wandering along to. Out of the way a little bit, it teases, giving a hint of what it might have been, without truly revealing itself.

This ruin is worth a quick visit. I don't know much about its history other than it was damaged by the ottoman. I can imagen it would have been a beautiful church.

Enough left to see but sad to see what must have been a magnificent building in this state. Some fresco remains in some sections.

Visited this church, or what's left of it in summer 2015. Even though there is not much to see, you can image how beautiful and grand this place must have been. It is sad to see it so neglected.
