St. John's Church and Aya Soluk Castle
St. John's Church is an inconspicuous place hidden behind Aya Soluk Castle. Unexpectedly, here is the Gospel of John written. The place below.
So it has also become a holy place for Christianity. However, there are not many people to visit, and tickets for Aya Soluk Castle already include it.

BTW, the barbecue outside is delicious!
