The church just situated on the top of the hill hence you may see this everywhere from the old town. The church was beautiful and worth to take a walk from the town there.

The church above the village provides beautiful views of the area. It is necessary to include the church tower. It is worth entering the slippery wooden stairs, because the panorama is fabulous.

Nice location of the church atop the hill overlooking the entire town. You will have a nice view of the sea. Spend about 15-20 minutes to take photos after which you can make your way down to the different alley ways.
