We enjoy the visit. Nice place with view of Arta. Very simple church with lot of information in English. You can make a tour in one small hour. There is small bar where you can get some drinks.

I have passed San Salvador so many times and at last today we visited. Decided to walk up, even though others say it is not for the elderly or young children (I am a pensioner). We walked up the path, which is shorter, but rather...More
