Church of St-Sofia Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

The church of St-Sofia is one of the country's oldest sanctuaries. Built on the foundations of a previous church dating from 363, it was turned into a mosque in the 16C, destroyed by two earthquakes and finally restored in 1999. The lofty interior and the beautiful brick vaulting are particularly striking. The archaeological presentation, which is just beginning, should, whithin a few years, show the remains of two previous churches and reveal Byzantine mosaics and graves.
