Basilica of the Merciful Virgin information
Overlooking the sea, the Basilica of the Merciful Virgin dates from the 6th century, and later became a monastery. The fortified tower alongside it was built as a response to pirate raids along the coast; eventually abandoned and partly swallowed by the sea, it was only rediscovered by archaeologists in the 1920s.
