Overview
More
The church of "Gospe van grada" (''Our Lady Out of Town'') was erected on the site of the medieval cemetery and the small church of Sts. Cosmas and Damian (1452). After the Parish of Varos had been established (1604), the adaptation of the old church began. It was extended and the construction of the new stone church was completed in 1740. Afterwards, a bell tower was built and connected to the church by a small bridge. Around the church was the public cemetery which was abandoned in 1828.

I didn't go inside the church but the area surrounding was a nice place to sit and take a break in the shade. Don't forget to look at the family of turtles in the center fountain. A relaxing area.

In front of the church there is grass, trees, places to rest, and a fountain. Some shadow for sunny days, resting after wandering in the old town.
