As the church, the castle and the bell-tower stand on the very limited space available on top of the rock, no wonder that it is difficult to have a general view of the complex. This is why I have given as a main picture of this page the photo of a reduced scale of the complex, though it is in poor condition.
The church was built in 1565 by king Leo

Photo 1 shows the rear of the church

Photo 2 shows the side of the defense tower with its narrow windows.

Photo 3 was taken in the tiny yard. On the left (almost not showing), the church, in the middle, in the far background, the bell tower, in the middle background, the defense tower and in the foreground, the entrance into the tower (left) and a gift shop (right)

Photo 4 shows the church from above (from the defense tower)

Photo 5 is a close-up on the bck wall of the church. The bricks have been arranged to draw the picture of a cross.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
