Very nice place in the middle of buildings. It has special atmosphere and when we were visiting the rotunda there was a wedding so it was very magical.

The Rotunda of St. George is the most ancient place! It is located right in the centre of the city, close to Precidency. The church is part of a larger archaeological complex. Behind the apse, there are ancient ruins.
