  Sandy in the chair!
by sandysmith

In the middle of the open grass just by the Basilica is a stone chair or throne, popularly known as "Attila's chair". This was more realistically the chair that was used by the tribunes of the island for administer Justice and not for tourists to sit in! Legend says that anyone occupying the chair will be married within a year!
