No need to go into the church to view the ancient ruins outside, each area has an interpretation board. There is a 'modest' dress code for entering the church e.g. no shorts, swimwear, short skirts etc.

A short distance from the harbour and bus station and well worth a visit. Our friend visited for Catholic mass as did some others from our hotel. The site is well covered by other posts so I will just say that there were no restrictions...More
