It was amazing to see the structure still standing and accessible after so many centuries. Need to be careful climbing steps but its worth going into and its free!

It is overlooked by the rather dirty "Tree of Love" where lovers tie stuff to the tree like people... More

A short 10 minute walk from the harbour is this amazing Free piece of ancient history, going back thousands of years. We discovered this on our walk to the Kings Mall, I could not believe you could just stumble on such history. It has no introduction other than the brown road sign.

Small catacomb. Not much there, but it's free. Be careful of the low doorways! I bumped my head so badly, I came close to blacking out. (Had to hold ice on ot for hours) The doorways are only about 4-4.5 ft high...

Try to access it from the slope off the Agion Anargiron Avenue before you get to the large modern church. On top of the small hill you will find a great pebble mosaic, the largest ever found on the island.
