This is historical church, which you must see. The old town is so special for everyone person, because this place is so old.

Another beautiful Church in tiny Nessebar dating back to 13 cent. It has a very nice Byzanthine facade, decorated with red and white bricks and ceramic elements. One part of roof is destroyed.

Loved Nessebar. Great history going back as far as 500 ad. One working church and loads of historical sites. Loads of steps and cobbles so maybe not for everyone but nice place to visit

walked around, took loads of pics, but you need to make sure the church is open to go inside - there is a charge
