Tour the ancient passageways and tombs of St. Solomon's Catacombs, the remains of an underground church with 12th-century frescoes and a holy water site. Some researchers have shown that the area was used as a burial place during the Hellenistic era. View the dark, humid chamber where people prayed many centuries ago (and some still do). Look for a large tree that grows from the structure's walls: tying a ribbon around its branch will improve your health, according to a local legend. The lack of historical data for this site makes it a place of mystery, and a special spot for the locals.

There isn't any information there but it's worth a visit as the caves that have been carved out are incredible, do yourself a favour and visit
