We've bisited this twice now and found it very interesting. But be warned the steps can be really dangerous. It's very easy to get to and its only 5 - 10 minutes walk from the harbour and its free to get in

Special if you think about the time these catacombs were in use. Free admission so go if you pass it when you are on your way to the beautifull st paul’s pillar’s area. Skip it if you are not in the surroundings of it

This could be a great attraction. Unfortunately it has a lot rubbish littered around in the caves along with cigarette stubs, cigarette packets and empty beer cans. Maybe if there was a small charge it would allow for maintenance of the site and make it...More

Thank you. We did find them last year. Also a large area being newly excavated behind some houses. Looking forward to seeing how they have got on when we return in October.
